Teaching is something I am extremely passionate about. I am keen to share my experience and expertise with the younger generations. Given that my academic career is intermingled with my consulting projects, in the classroom I often draw from my own experience in the field. I am also very lucky to have some really incredibly talented students. I am pretty demanding as an instructor. However, I am very dedicated to my students and I am passionate about their learning, within my classroom and beyond.

In this page you will find links to current and older versions of my syllabi and newer versions as well. This page is in progress as I have moved institutions three times (The University of British Columbia’s Department of Political Science, Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas’ (CIDE) Public Administration Division, and my current position at the Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales (FLACSO) México, with the Methods Lab.
