About me:

I teach courses in European politics and international politics.

My research interests are in European politics and societies, transatlantic relations, and questions of governance. I am presently engaged in a comparative study of Wisconsin and the German state of Hessen in an attempt to find out if federalism and federalization provide positive answers to the challenges of globalization.

I received my PhD in political science from Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ. Before returning to the United States, 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. I have also been a CEP and a DAAD lecturer at the University of Cluj-Napoca and the University of Bucharest, Romania, and have given lectures at a variety of other institutions.
