Honors College at WKU

Academic Advisor

My Role in the Honors College

I advise students and teach Honors colloquia.

Educational Background

I was an exchange student in Anoka, Minnesota, double-majored in International Service & Development and International Management & Business at World College West in Petaluma, California, received an MA in Political Science & International Relations from Sciences Po in Paris, and obtained a pre-doctoral degree in Political Science from the Robert Schuman Univeristy in Strasbourg, France. In addition, I spent a semester studying Chinese at the Taipei Language Institute in Taiwan, and a summer of total immersion into Spanish in Antigua, Guatemala.

Academic Interests

I am most interested in how the global economic and political system operates, especially at the intersection of resources, the environment, and technology.

What Brought Me to the HC

I love working with students to advance their education and help them achieve their goals.

A Little About Myself

I love learning, teaching, reading and traveling – among many other things – and above all to spend as much time as possible with my partner Elizabeth, our son Elijah, and our cats. I listen to all sorts of music whenever I can, and love to share it with others by way of DJing.
