I am a political scientist specializing in international relations (international conflict and international security). My Ph.D. is from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I am currently assistant professor at Kansas State University, a large public research university in Manhattan, Kansas. I teach courses on international relations, international conflict, and security studies. I also occasionally teach a course on Latin American Politics.

Welcome, new editor! We're very glad you've joined us. Here are pointers for a quick start. Also, when you get a chance, please read The Editor Role. You can look at Getting Started and our help system for other introductory pages. It is also important, for project-wide matters, to join the Citizendium-L (broadcast) mailing list. Announcements are also available via Twitter. You can test out editing in the sandbox if you'd like. If you need help to get going, the forum is one option. That's also where we discuss policy and proposals. You can ask any administrator for help, too. Just put a note on their "talk" page. Again, welcome and thank you! We appreciate your willingness to share your expertise, and we hope to see your edits on Recent changes soon. --Larry Sanger 16:27, 14 December 2006 (CST)
