Teaching

I teach undergraduate and graduate courses on international relations, past and present, with a substantive focus on the international relations of East Asia, Japanese and Chinese politics and foreign policy, and U.S. policy toward the Asia-Pacific. My courses are joint-listed in EALC and Political Science, and cross-listed in International Studies.
