You can read my teaching statement here.
I am a passionate teacher and encourage each student to grow as a learner over time through innovative metacognitive and active-learning classroom techniques. Some of the activities that I use include anonymous polls to help students identify lectures’ most difficult concepts, post-exam reflection sheets, and class discussions on the growth and fixed mindsets. I am grateful to the NC State Office of Postdoctoral Affairs for providing me support to improve these methods over the 2019-20 academic year. I am currently a fellow in the MAA’s Project NExT (New Experiences in Teaching).
I am teaching MA 341: Applied Differential equations at NC State during the spring 2021 semester. I have previously taught MA 225: Foundations of Advanced Mathematics and MA 131: Calculus for Life and Management Sciences A. As a graduate student at the University of Colorado, Boulder, I led a Calculus I course as well as several recitations in pre-Calculus, Calculus, and Differential Equations.
Participating in undergraduate research projects brought me to graduate school and jumpstarted my research career! I am interested in providing similar opportunities for students by developing material that expose them to research problems and how mathematics addresses many scientific problems. This includes an introduction to natural language processing for high school students (link) and a tutorial on inverse problems under the context of precision medicine for an undergraduate workshop. I have also lead a team of undergraduate students on a project in learning ODE models from noisy data.
