Hello, and welcome to OnlinePoliticalScience.org! My name is Jennifer. I have a Ph.D. in international conflict resolution and have been a Political Science professor for 9 years now in addition to writing for this site. One of my favorite parts of my job is interacting with students. I love advising them on courses to take, helping them secure internships, and watching them become independent critical thinkers. I would love to mentor more students and show more people what political science has to offer. Since just about everyone has a blog these days, I thought this was a great place to start!
