I am a lecturer in the Department of Political Science at The Pennsylvania State University. I earned my Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with concentrations in political theory and international relations, and graduate specializations in Human Rights and Humanitarian Affairs (Ph.D.) and Women’s and Gender Studies (M.A.). My research examines transitional justice, human rights/women’s rights, international law/international organizations, and feminist theory, particularly care ethics.
