Teaching and communicating mathematics is an important part of my mathematical identity, and I value the impact that I have as an educator. It is for this reason that I am committed to **inclusive and equitable teaching** that **affirms and empowers** students.

My Teaching Statement was last updated September 2020.

My **Teaching Portfolio** (which contains student evaluations, teaching materials, and sample syllabi) is available upon request.

## Currently Teaching:

In Spring 2022, I am teaching two lectures of **Math 32A**, Calculus of Several Variables (Learning Objectives).

If you are interested in taking/getting off the waitlist for 32A, you are welcome to attend lectures as a guest before the add/drop deadline, and you should also talk to me before/after class to be added to the course Canvas page.

## Teaching Experience:

For an extended list and description of past courses that I have taught, click here.

**UCLA**:

- In Winter 2022, I taught
**Math 32BH**, Calculus of Several Variables Honors (Learning Objectives). - In Winter 2022, I taught
**Math 32B**, Calculus of Several Variables (Learning Objectives). - In Fall 2021, I taught
**Math 32AH**, Calculus of Several Variables Honors (Learning Objectives). - In Fall 2021, I taught
**Math 32A**, Calculus of Several Variables (Learning Objectives).

**UT Austin**:

- From Spring 2020 - Spring 2021, I was the Instructor of Record for
**M 371E**: Learning Assistant Experience in Mathematics.

As part of this role, I also coordinated CalcLab. - In Fall 2018, I was a TA for
**UGS 303**: From Numbers to Chaos. - In Spring 2018, I was a TA for
**M 408M**(multivariable calculus). - In Fall 2017, I was an SI leader for
**M 408K**(differential calculus).

**Rutgers University**:

- In Summer 2013, I was a TA for the Young Scholars Program in Discrete Mathematics.
- From Fall 2012 - Spring 2015, I was a Mathematics Peer Mentor for
**152H**,**192H**,**251H**,**291H**, and**292H**.

**Summer MiniCourses:**

Since Summer 2017, I have either taught or co-taught Summer Minicourses on homological algebra and/or spectral sequences. Each minicourse is a week of lectures and problem sessions, and they are designed to teach graduate and advanced undergraduate students tools, methods, or ideas that may be helpful in research-level mathematics.

For example, in Summer 2020, I co-taught the minicourse "Spectral Sequence Training Montage", with Arun Debray. I compiled this set of exercises, and created slides and video recordings, which you can find here.

## Mentorship:

**Directed Reading Program:**

I have also mentored 9 undergraduate reading projects on various topics in algebra, topology, and homotopy theory through the UT Austin Directed Reading Program (DRP). I use inquiry-based learning techniques in my mentoring - you will eventually find sample DRP project notes here.

If you're interested in doing a DRP or reading project with me, **send me an email!**

**Letters of Recommendation:**

If I have taught, mentored, or worked with you, I am always happy to provide support for you and your goals. However, I will only be able to write a strong and effective letter of recommendation if I can supply personal details about you, beyond your grades. To this end, you should also send me your application materials (CV/resume, letter of application, etc.). If I don't think I am properly equipped to write a good letter for you, I will tell you so.
