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 a wide range of careers. I have extensive teaching experience in international relations and data science, both as an instructor of record and as a leader of 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 in 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.
