Robert C.

United States


I am the Acting Director of the technical office in USAID’s Bureau for Europe and Eurasia, where I have the privilege of collaborating with some of the United States’ leading experts in democracy and governance, economic growth, energy, health, and education was we advance American interests and promote development in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. I also serve on the External Global Studies Advisories Committee for Hood College’s Center for Global Studies. Prior to working in international development, I worked as a property manager in the Detroit and Washington D.C. metropolitan areas, as an adjunct professor of history, and as an adjudicator for the Department of Homeland Security. During my free time, I enjoy studying history, astronomy, writing, and spending time with my children. I have completed a book-length dissertation, This Great Contest of Principle: Politics, Nationalism, and the Compromise of 1850, and Lucy, a novel of historical horror.
