TEACHING

In the spring of 2017, I will be teaching the introductory American politics course as a lecturer at Yale. At Princeton, I have served as a preceptor (teaching assistant) at the undergraduate and graduate levels. My teaching interests are broadly in the areas of American politics, especially in the areas of public opinion and political behavior, social identity, and public policy. I am also interested in teaching quantitative methods and research methods, more generally.

In the fall of 2014, I was a preceptor for Public Opinion, an undergraduate course taught by Tali Mendelberg. I led two weekly discussion sessions that focused on helping students critically engage course readings and apply concepts to current issues in American politics.

In the spring of 2014, I precepted for Quantitative Analysis II, the second quantitative methods course in the Department of Politics graduate sequence in formal theory and quantitative methods. The course was taught by Marc Ratkovic.

I served as an instructor for the Politics Statistical Programming Camp in January 2014 and 2015. The camp is designed to prepare graduate students with the software skills (using R) required for coursework in applied quantitative methods. The faculty advisor for the camp is Kosuke Imai.

I have also served as a research consultant for Princeton Research in Experimental Social Science (PRESS) and a tutor for students in the Freshman Scholars Institute quantitative reasoning course Visualizing Data.
