I have taught numerous courses at the intersection of social science and computational methods, including Data Science for Everyone (NYU), Programming with Data for Social Science (Northeastern), and several workshops on text and network methods analysis.
Across all these classes my teaching philosophy aims to empower and encourage students by engaging them as agents in their own education, developmentally building their problem-solving capacities, and giving them space to grow comfortable with the discomfort of difficult tasks. Drawing on my research background in deliberative democracy, I leverage principles of agency, discussion, and collaboration to create a classroom environment which is welcoming, supportive, and enthusiastic; setting high standards and giving students the resources and opportunities to rise to the occasion.
