and contributed to several books. I have recently published a book on "U.S. Politics
and Generation Y: Engaging the Millennials" (2013), coauthored the books "Winning
the White House, 2008" (2009), “Winning the White House, 2004: Region by Region, Vote
by Vote" (2005), and co-edited the book “Transformed by Crisis: The Presidency of
George W. Bush and American Politics” (2004). I have received the SUNY Chancellor’s
Award for Excellence in Teaching (2004) and the President's Award for Excellence in
Teaching (2011). I also serve as the coordinator for internships in Washington, DC.
Ph.D., University of Wisconsin, at Madison
Western European Politics, European Union, Immigration, Comparative Capitalism
716-673-4672 | email@example.com
My teaching interests are mostly in comparative politics: Western European politics,
the EU, immigration, and comparative capitalisms, though I also teach international
relations courses such as international law and international organization. My research
interests are in comparative political economy and international political economy
generally, as well as multi-level governance and international law. My research deals
with labor migration policy in W. European countries, where I examine the ability
of trade unions and employers' associations to determine policies. In-depth case study
analysis of Germany, the UK, Austria and the Netherlands has shown that labor migration
is moving away from national models toward a greater convergence in policies across
countries in the same sectors. Further research interests deal with whether the European
Union will be able to develop a comprehensive common immigration policy, a subject
on which I have published in the Journal of European Public Policy.

I am presently working on several research topics. First, I explore how governments
