As an instructor of economics and public policy, I aim to develop students’ abilities to understand and actively engage with policy-relevant social science using the toolkit of economics and statistics. To facilitate learning, I focus on three themes inside and outside the classroom: repeated exposure to concepts, applying new concepts and skills, and collaboration.

In the Fall 2017 and Fall 2018 semesters, I was Head TA for Advanced Econometrics 1 - the advanced track of the required econometrics course for Masters of Public Policy students at the Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University. The course covers topics such as basic probability, hypothesis testing, single regression, and multivariate regression. As the Head TA, I taught the lab session at least once a week, teaching students how to apply these concepts in Stata.
