So, first, finally got a picture of myself on the front page. It’s an older picture, but I have fortunately not changed that much so it’s relatively accurate. For reference, it’s from a study abroad trip to Spain from a few years back. Will attempt to get more recent picture eventually.
In other news, I also updated “Current Research” and “Teaching” to reflect some updates. First, have some projects in development with both Stanley Feldman and Michael Peress at Stony Brook. Good thing about writing papers for classes is sometimes you stumble onto an actual good idea.
The second thing is we’re starting the process of figuring out the class schedule for the 2016-2017 school year. As a second year graduate student I’m on the cusp of teaching: just got to pass the qualifying exams in January and June. Presuming that happens I am currently assigned to teach an Introduction to American Government class in both the Fall and Spring semesters. Considering that we’ll be in the throes of the general election in the Fall semester, I’m hoping it’ll be an interesting class.
If anyone has any advice on teaching a class such as that, I would greatly appreciate it.
