Luke has spent time in Central Asia and various countries of Latin America, which has inspired his research on the relationship between indigenous peoples and nation-states. Driven by a love for new and challenging ideas, Luke teaches classes in History and the Humanities Core. He came to Warner in 2007, joined by his wife Jillana and two daughters, Sophia and Eleni. When he is not in the classroom or his office, he might be found mixing it up on the basketball court or crooning behind his guitar.
