My field of research is modern Europe with emphasis in intellectual history, international relations, and the connections between the two. I define Europe within the context of world history and strive for a reflective understanding of the historical practice. I teach the European survey as well as advanced and graduate courses in international affairs, globalization, the history of theory, and methodology.
