Teaching 

My general teaching philosophy is student-centric learning. I am committed to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) through my teaching. I incorporate inclusive teaching techniques in my courses such as active learning, being clear about my expectations, and promoting growth mindsets. I also am interested in project-based courses, innovative assessment methods, and inquiry-based learning.

Mentoring Student Research

In addition to my experience as an instructor, I also have experience mentoring undergraduate research. I have developed a project-based independent study course, participated as a mentor in two undergraduate research experiences (REUs), supervised and co-supervised five undergraduate research projects, and mentored graduate student research. As a mentor, I have actively contributed to student learning and success by developing and presenting tutorials for methodology and software, editing and providing feedback on reports, proposals, and presentations, and providing letters of recommendation for internships. I frequently meet with students to ensure that they receive the support they need, and my mentoring style is very active and student-centered. I utilize mentoring techniques intended to be inclusive to a diverse student population. My passion for undergraduate mentoring research has contributed to my interest in and enjoyment of teaching project-based courses. In the future, I would like to develop courses that incorporate final projects over exams and courses that get students excited and interested in research.
