My teaching portfolio covers a wide range of political science courses for bachelor and master students as well as summer schools and workshops for PhD students, senior researchers, and faculty members. I offer substantive courses on international security, foreign policy analysis, and conflict studies. I am also teaching empirical research methods, especially Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) in the R software environment.
