In my years as a graduate and undergraduate student, I benefited from teachers whose pedagogical ingenuity and intellectual curiosity pushed me to excel. As an assistant professor, lecturer, and associate instructor, I have sought to similarly inspire undergraduate students to realize their full academic potential. At Occidental College and UC Davis, I have had the privilege to teach undergraduate courses in American politics, comparative politics, and research methods as the instructor of record. In 2019, I was honored to receive the Marvin Zetterbaum Award for Excellence in Graduate Student Instruction from the UC Davis Department of Political Science.
