In the fall of 2007, I joined Lehigh University for a unique opportunity to participate in the development of a new program in comparative and international education. Before coming to Lehigh, I spent seven years living and working in various parts of the former Soviet Union, including Central Asia (Kazakhstan), the Caucasus (Azerbaijan), and Belarus (often referred to as “the last dictatorship in Europe”). I look forward to working with the Lehigh community while the new M.A. and Ph.D. program in Comparative and International Education forms, as well as contribute to the larger internationalization efforts at Lehigh.


My academic and professional background is in comparative education and international education policy. My research focuses on the study of globalization, democratization, and policy ‘borrowing’ in education.  While my publications cover a wide range of issues critical to understanding post-socialist education transformation processes, some of the central research topics include (1) gender equity trends in Eastern/Central Europe and Central Asia, (2) minority/multicultural education policies in the former Soviet Union, (3) the role of international NGOs in post-socialist transformations, and (4) the scope, nature, and implications of private tutoring in a cross-national perspective.


Since 2008, I have served as an editor (with Noah W. Sobe) of a quarterly, peer-reviewed journal entitled,
European Education: Issues and Studies (published by M.E. Sharpe).
