Teaching is a vital aspect of the profession that I approach with deep commitment and enthusiasm, as education is the most important pathway to social mobility. I have extensive experience teaching comparative politics and international relations and have consistently received outstanding evaluations. I have had the pleasure of teaching both during my graduate training and now at Tulane University.  I taught students who challenged me every day to become a better instructor.


As an educator, I am always willing to work with my students so they can achieve their learning goals and relate the course content with their lived experiences. This is how students can effectively convert the information they receive into knowledge that is relevant to them, and that is what the college experience is all about. 


My teaching always seeks provide students with tools to assess current social science work critically.


As a teacher, I am committed to providing effective assessment and feedback to students. Furthermore, as and immigrant and first-generation college student myself, I am passionate about mentoring students from diverse backgrounds, particularly those from historically underrepresented communities in higher education.
