Dear students past and present,
As you all know, advising is something I take seriously regardless of your current status as my student. I have virtual office hours available for students and alumni alike on my youcanbookme site. In person office hours are available for current students Tuesdays and Thursdays.
While I enjoy meeting with each of you, some semesters I have less availability in my schedule than others. If you are unsure through what means you should direct your inquiry please see the FAQ below.
I look forward to hearing from you,
In addition to working with students from my classes, I also am also Director of USC's Security and Political Economy Lab integrating underrepresented student populations into the academic research and publication process.

The SPEC Lab conducts interdisciplinary, policy-relevant research on issues at the intersection of social issues, security, and economic development. In a collaborative team setting, students develop data science and other research skills that are then applied directly to the policy challenges facing national governments and international institutions.
We focus in particular on recruiting and serving female, minority, and first-generation students early in their undergraduate career. In a close-knit, supportive research community we are building the next generation of social science researchers. If you are interested in the substance of the lab and the training we provide, please take a look at the SPEC Lab website to find out more about us.
