I am an Associate Professor in Political Science and I focus on issues of international security in my research and teaching. In the past I helped organize our faculty union, and I am a strong believer that the faculty should work to meaningfully help run this University so that it is the best University it can be. I served in the Senate previously and at that time I thought the Senate was able to achieve many very important things related to a high quality education, including such things as a new academic freedom policy, the student-directed employee reporting policy, gender neutral bathrooms and much more. I think the Senate is also striving to maintain quality education even as we have more on-line classes, and I think this is very important for maintaining UO’s reputation. I look forward to serving again.
