My areas of teaching interest include management, economic sociology, human capital strategy, social mobility and inequality, corporate governance, statistics, causal inference, business analytics, organizational theory, and entrepreneurial organization structure, financing, and strategy.

Three factors influenced my teaching philosophy:

  1. Leading sections for two 'flipped and gamified' undergraduate classes helped me to understand how pedagogical innovation can engage students by linking material to their individual interests.

  2. Leading sections, twice, for the second sociology statistics graduate course showed me how much I enjoy explaining the statistical and analytical tools I studied in my Applied Statistics MA.

  3. Working with 8 undergraduates for full-semester research assistantships helped me to understand my love of mentoring the research process and empowering student independence.

Throughout my teaching and mentoring, I am committed to creating an inclusive classroom experience where students feel respected, included, and challenged regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, disability, and other social factors that are the basis of durable inequalities in our society.
