Thibaud M. J. Henin
Ph.D. Candidate in Political Science
This website provides additional information about my research, work experience, and education.
I am currently writing my dissertation as a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Political Science at the University of Oregon, and am an Associate with the Ecologic Institute, Berlin.
As a Graduate Teaching Fellow at the University of Oregon, I have been the instructor-of-record for "PS 101: Modern World Governments", "PS 297: Introduction to Environmental Politics," and have taught over 14 discussion sections to undergraduates in the fields of international relations, comparative politics and environmental politics.
Since 2011, I have also been an Associate with the Ecologic Institute, Berlin. This has allowed me to contribute to projects for clients such as the European Commission, the OECD and EUREAU.
I enjoy discovering new cultures, have traveled extensively throughout the Americas and Europe, and I am always looking for opportunities to collaborate with researchers abroad.
