University Courses Taught

I have greatly enjoyed teaching a variety of classes at Temple, ranging from lecture-based surveys to reading-intensive seminars. In 2016, I was honored to be recognized with the Temple University’s CLA Distinguished Teaching Award. I typically teach the following offerings:


  • Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders in the US (General Education, lecture/discussion-based)
  • Foreign Governments (introductory, lecture-based)
  • Middle East Politics (upper-level, lecture-based)
  • Comparative Democracy (upper-level, seminar-based)


  • Comparative Politics Field Seminar
  • Political Regimes and Democratization
  • Middle East and Islamic Politics
  • Qualitative Research Methods
