Advising

In addition to lecturing, I have also had several opportunities to advise undergraduate students in writing theses both in political science and across the social sciences and humanities (e.g. history, linguistics, psychology, art history, sociology). Below are selected syllabii from these courses. Student evaluations and sample theses are available upon request, where applicable.

Pedagogy

Beyond lecturing and advising, I have also been involved in the conferences, seminars, and workshops offered by the Chicago Center for Teaching at the University of Chicago. I currently serve as a senior Teaching Consultant with the Center, which has provided a unique opportunity for me to facilitate the development of graduate teaching across a range of departments—including chemistry, economics, history, math, music, philosophy, political science, religion, and theater—through Individual Teaching Consultations (ITCs) and Mid-Course Reviews (MCRs).
