Teaching Interests


My teaching, like my research, reflects a passionate interest in the specific circumstances in which conflict intersects with development, human rights, and the environment.

Community Engaged Learning

I partnered with The Greenlight Fund – Twin Cities on a community-based project. Based on the needs identified by The GreenLight Fund my students undertook various projects culminating in a final report that became a resource for Agenda Setting for Economic Justice in St Paul and Minneapolis. The GreenLight Fund received funding of 1.4 million dollars.
