I strive to make my classroom a welcoming, inclusive, and productive environment. I believe that learning comes when we feel comfortable engaging with one another, when we are willing to take risks and make mistakes, and when activities and course material are presented with a goal of accessibility.
In Fall 2023, I will serve as the principal instructor for Political Science 373: Survey Research (undergraduate). The class will emphasize (1) critical evaluation and consumption of surveys, (2) principals of design and implementation of surveys and survey experiments, and (3) analysis of surveys and survey experiments. Students will design, implement, and analyze their own surveys. The class facilitates hands-on research experience for undergraduates.

TA Mentor: For the 2022-3 Academic Year, I served as the Department TA Mentor. Under this title, I designed and facilitated orientation sessions for first-time TAs in the Political Science Department, observed discussion sections and constructively worked with first-time TAs to handle challenges of the job, and held check-in and skill-building events throughout the year.
Math Camp Instructor: I also serve as the graduate instructor for our voluntary summer math program for incoming Ph.D. Students (2022 and 2023). I helped design programming and hold weekly office hours throughout the summer. Along with this, I was and am the instructor for 'Math Camp', a one-week mandatory program for incoming Ph.D. students to prepare for the first-year methods sequence. The 'camp' exposes students with a variety of quantitative backgrounds to advanced mathematical concepts. As with my other teaching, the same emphasis on accessible presentation of complex information guides my approach.
