Dr. Ana Alves Shippey joined Lee’s faculty in 2013. She teaches courses in international relations, comparative politics, and American government and advises students in the political science and international studies majors. Her current research focuses on the claims to territoriality and authority of violent non-state actors including drug cartels, organized crime, transnational gangs, and terrorist groups.
