Political Science and International Relations


Dr. Avi Spiegel and Dr. Adina Batnitzky Join USD


The Spiegel-Batnitzky family had plenty to celebrate last semester. Both Adina Batnitzky, PhD, and her spouse, Avi Spiegel, PhD, JD were invited to join the USD faculty as assistant professors of sociology and political science, respectively. Just days after they came aboard, Spiegel's research in Middle East politics made him a sought-after media contact for ongoing coverage of the Arab Spring. He was featured onHuffingtonPost.comAl Jazeera and many other news outlets. We caught up with this enthusiastic and service-minded couple to discuss their research, careers and family life.
