Teaching

Teaching philosophy
As an instructor of economics and public policy, I take seriously the responsibility and opportunity to facilitate student learning. Throughout my teaching experiences, I have developed three core teaching principles which I aim to incorporate into all my interactions with students: 
        1. Active and engaged learning
        2. Mutual respect and collaboration
        3. Applicability of concepts beyond the classroom
For more, please see my teaching statement

Pedagogical training
To develop as an instructor and learn about new and exciting teaching methods and ideas, I seek opportunities for pedagogical training. I am enrolled in Duke University'sCertificate in College Teaching program and am a Preparing Future Faculty Fellow (2018-19)
