I am delighted to have been selected for the “Glasgow Crucible,” the University of Glasgow’s leadership and development program to support motivated early career researchers. The main goal of this series of workshops is to learn how to be bolder and more ambitious in funding apps and publications but also to professionalize one’s knowledge exchange, impact, and scholarship agendas. Anyways, I look forward to being a part of this! More information is here.
My research about renewables investments and why governments are loving it was featured at Washington Post’s Monkey Cage blog. The research is based on our forthcoming Journal of Politics piece with the title “It’s All about Political Incentives: Demcracy and the Renewable Feed-in Tariff.”
As of March 2016, I have taken over as Director/Convener of the MSc/MRes programs in International Relations at Glasgow’s School of Social and Political Sciences. I serve as academic point of contact for anyone interested in joining our taught postgraduate programs.
As of yesterday, I started my new position as Lecturer/ Assistant Professor in International Relations in the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Glasgow. I am delighted about the opportunities and challenges this new job entails and about working for such a well respected institution which dates back to 1451.
I will be teaching an Honours level course on “Global Environmental Politics” and a postgraduate seminar on “Challenges in International Politics.” I am excited about these two classes and about interacting with my students here in Glasgow: Fàilte gu Glaschu!
