I am an instructor in Politics & International Affairs at Northern Arizona University (NAU). The university is located in Flagstaff in Northern Arizona. It’s a beautiful little mountain town that makes it so much easier to study and still get enough fresh air.
My research interests are rooted in International Relations theory and Genocide. I am particularly interested in indigenous experiences during the settlement of the North American continent.
I am originally from Germany, where I have lived in literally every corner of the country. During my childhood, I have experienced many political changes and struggles, which certainly have shaped my worldview and my interest in political science. In 2004, a scholarship from the Federation of German American Clubs (VDAC) provided the funds to study abroad for one year at NAU. This is where I experienced one of the greatest teachers in Political Science and decided that this is the program in which I want to earn my graduate degrees.
I received my PhD in Political Science in 2017. Since then I have taught classes in Political Science and the Bachelor’s of University Studies program at NAU.
