I am passionate about the evolution and enforcement of all aspects of International Law.

What excites me about being a professor at MIIS is that it fulfills my other passion—that of teaching—in a most exciting way. I can share both passions with an internationally oriented student population that is aware of and articulate in the language of International Law.
