I am a Member of the Faculty in the Master of Public Administration Program at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, USA, and received my PhD in Public Policy and Political Science from the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor. My academic interests are primarily in security issues, including empirical international relations and U.S. homeland security policy.

2013 Institute for Qualitative and Multi-Method Research

I will be attending the 2013 Institute for Qualitative and Multi-Method Research, which is being held at the Maxwell School of Syracuse University from June 17 to June 28, 2013.

The institute seeks to enable students to create and critique methodologically sophisticated qualitative research designs, including case studies, tests of necessity or sufficiency, and narrative or interpretive work. It explores the techniques, uses, strengths, and limitations of these methods, while emphasizing their relationships with alternative approaches. Topics include research design, concept formation, methods of structured and focused comparisons of cases, typological theory, case selection, process tracing, comparative historical analysis, congruence testing, path dependency, interpretivism, counterfactual analysis, interview and field research (including archival) techniques, necessary and sufficient conditions, fuzzy set methods, and philosophy of science issues relevant to qualitative research.
