I teach courses in European and international politics in the Department of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin, Whitewater.
For more information on teaching, please click here.
My research interests are in European politics and societies with focus on European integration, European Union, and the areas of Southeastern Europe and European foreign/security policy; international politics with focus on transatlantic relations, governance, and security; political and social theories with focus on theories of modernity, post-modernity, transformation, and identity.

I received my Ph.D. in political science from Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ. Before coming to UW-Whitewater in the fall of 2007, I taught two academic years in a non-tenure track position in the Department of Political Science and in the Master of International Studies program at North Carolina State University. Prior to that, I held various academic positions in Europe, including as an Assistant Professor in the European Studies program at American University in Bulgaria and as a senior research fellow of the German Science Association (DFG) in the Department of Political Science at the University of Giessen, Germany, where I also taught courses in European and international politics. I have also been a CEP and a DAAD lecturer at the University of Cluj-Napoca and the University of Bucharest, Romania, and I have given lectures at Middle East Technical University, Ankara, and Bosporus University, Istanbul, Turkey, among others.

An additional useful-links-page will be added soon.
"1679," my extension number at UWW, is the year of Thomas Hobbes' death and the birthdate of Christian Wolff. The links connect to their respective Wikipedia entries, which provide a first overview. On Wikipedia as a resource, see Michael Agger, “Wikipedia Unmasked,” in the online magazine Slate:
The picture above right, “Earth’s City Lights,” was chosen because it can illustrate some of the crucial issues that we, namely, all humans, are faced with today. It is meant as an invitation to think about politics.
