Dr. Leah Wells Windsor (MA '06) is a new instructor in the department. She received her PhD in Political Science from the University of Mississippi in 2012. Her dissertation was on "The Political Consequences of Natural Disasters," with chapters examining sub-national contentious behavior, human rights, and leadership tenure. In 2011 she participated in Journeys in World Politics at the University of Iowa, won the Best Graduate Paper award at the Mississippi Political Science Association meeting, and presented two papers at the International Studies Association in San Diego, CA. In 2012 she earned travel grants to attend the annual conferences for The Society for Political Methodology in Chapel Hill, NC as well as the American Political Science Association in New Orleans, LA. She is currently working on a paper on the composition of peacekeeping operations with Dr. Megan Shannon (Florida State University) and Dr. Jacob Kathman (SUNY Buffalo). She has a co-authored article on climate migration forthcoming in International Feminist Journal of Politics.

Leah looks forward to teaching classes in the areas of American Government, International Relations and Political Statistics for the department, and will coordinate the brown bag lecture series this year.
