My primary goal in the classroom is to teach students to think critically and rigorously about the social world.
At Cornell University, I have been both an instructor and a teaching assistant for Introduction to Sociology. As an instructor, I first emphasize both macro- and micro-sociological approaches to comprehending the social world, then lead an examination of various dimensions of social inequality in contemporary society, and conclude with a broad survey of other substantive sociological topics (such as globalization, public health, and deviance). The syllabus from my Summer 2018 Introduction to Sociology course can be downloaded here.
I also have extensive experience as a teacher of applied quantitative methods. I have been a teaching assistant for Introductory and Intermediate Statistics Courses designed for sociologists and social scientists and "Data Science for All" - an introductory class covering elements of statistics, data analysis, probability, and programming that is offered jointly by Cornell's departments of Operations Research, Statistics, and Computer Science.
