Teaching

As a teacher, I aim to develop my students’ critical thinking skills so that they can better interpret, engage with, and analyze the world they live in while preparing them for wide range of careers. I have extensive teaching experience in international relations and data science, both as

instructor of record and teaching discussion sections. I employ active learning and pedological best practices to engage my students with course material. I acknowledge my students come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences, not only in their schooling but also their life

experiences, relationships, and exposure to different ideas and perspectives. I aim to provide an inclusive classroom with opportunities for engagement and diverse perspectives.

I have served as a Senior Teaching Assistant in UC San Diego's Department of Political Science (2019-2020 International Relations, Fall 2020 Political Methodology and International Relations) to facilitate other graduate students' teaching experience. In Fall 2021, I received the Department of Political Science's Teaching Excellence Award.
