Philosophy | Experience | Syllabi | Evaluations


I am excited to pursue a career in teaching. I have taught with scientists and historians, developing numerical modeling techniques with underprivileged high school students at the Santa Fe Institute, tutoring freshman biology students in writing, and discussing the techno-politics of science fiction with advanced undergrads. Through Penn, I have received specialized training in teaching public speaking, expository writing, and grant writing.

Follow the links at left to learn more about my approach to teaching, my experiences as a teaching assistant and guest lecturer and student evaluations of my performance in the classroom. I have also produced some sample syllabi describing a few of the courses I could teach. These syllabi also suggest how I would select readings and integrate multi-media materials into courses.
