Research Interests

I am currently writing my PhD dissertation on the History of Women in International Relations (IR) with a specific focus on women IR scholars in the United States before the 1980’s.

I enjoy teaching a wide range of courses in International Relations and Political Theory, with a particular interest in Gender and Globalization, Women Political Thinkers, International Security, Modern Political Theory, and the Politics of South Asia. 

I am also the Associate Director of UConn’s Humanities House Learning Community and interested in developing First Year Experience programs.
