As an instructor, my goal is to prepare students to be thoughtful global citizens in an increasingly complex world. Through my experiences and trainings, I have come to identify three core teaching principles that are key to this objective. First, I prioritize cultivating an inclusive learning environment. Second, I encourage students to be critical consumers of information. Third, I demonstrate how course concepts and skills apply to life outside the classroom. I am interested in teaching courses on urbanization and development, the political economy of development, political behavior and identity, gender and development, and research methods.
