Teaching

I have taught three courses at the University of Toronto. These courses are:
  • POL317 Comparative Public Policy: This is a one semester undergraduate course primarily aimed at third and fourth year political science concentrators. In this course, we covered general theories of public policy development in a comparative setting, as well as topical units on immigration, social policy, labor markets, and  criminal justice (Syllabus).
  • PPG2008 Comparative Public Policy: This is a one semester graduate course required for all Masters of Public Policy students in the School of Public Policy and Governance. It covers both theoretical and research design issues that arise in the comparison of policies across countries. It then applies these tools to two areas of ongoing debate - immigration and social policy - and other areas chosen for research by the students (Syllabus).
  • POL410 Democracy and Responsiveness in Europe: This is a one semester seminar with fourth year undergraduates, MA students, and PhD students. It focuses on a variety of approaches to studying the relationship between public preferences and public policy in Europe at both the domestic and EU levels (Syllabus).

Courses for which I have served as a teaching assistant:

  • Democracy
  • Politics in Africa
  • Quantitative Methods III
