I am a passionate and dedicated teacher with extensive experience developing and implementing diverse curriculums covering a wide range of subjects in Comparative Politics, International Relations, and Methodology. Teaching at three universities has equipped me with an extensive background in diverse education environments and given me a chance to grow as a student-centric educator and academic facilitator. As an energetic instructor with proven skills in teaching diverse subjects, I keep classrooms organized to facilitate effective teaching and provide a warm and safe learning environment. I am committed to providing students with strong support to accomplish academic goals, instilling a love of learning, achieving cooperative and optimal teamwork promoting goal-oriented activities, and encouraging critical and problem-solving thinking. I design course assignments to optimize student performance and success.
I have taught both undergraduate and graduate-level courses in Comparative Politics, Global Studies, Quantitative Methods, and International Relations. I am well-trained in in-person, online, and hybrid modes of instruction. I have delivered lectures through online platforms and organized a hybrid class during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Quantitative Research Methods
I am very interested in teaching quantitative research method courses and would be delighted to offer courses including Data Management and Analysis, Regression Analysis: Linear Models, Regression Analysis: Advanced Methods, Applied Regression Models, Multinomial Likelihood Estimation (MLE), Panel Data and Longitudinal Analysis, Categorical Data Analysis, and Machine Learning Approach to Social Science Research. I can offer Introduction to R or Introduction to Python courses as well.
In addition to these courses, I am interested in offering both graduate and undergraduate-level courses in specialized areas including political violence, civil conflict, authoritarian politics, human rights and state repression, democratization, environmental politics, and international conflict, with a regional focus on the post-Soviet world, East European politics, and the Middle East.
