Supervision Interests

"I welcome research proposals on all aspects of international law theory and politics, including the structure and design of international law instruments and institutions, compliance with and enforcement of international legal rules, and the relationship between comparative and international law. I would be particularly interested in supervising projects focusing on international criminal law and comparative human rights, as part of my current research interests. 

As a supervisor, I am committed to playing a strong mentorship role in the professional lives of my students across-the-board: introducing them to the right interlocutors; counseling them on fellowships, conferences, and workshops; and shepherding them through the academic job market. I expect my supervisees to be creative, ambitious, and independent".
