For my teaching philosophy, detailed teaching experience, and sample course materials, consult my Teaching Portfolio
(Updated: Spring 2016).
In Spring 2017, I also developed additional syllabi, sample assignments and rubrics as part of the Brown Sheridan Center
Certificate on Course Design: Linear Algebra
and Modeling Biological Systems
Fall 2014 - Fall 2016: Instructor for Beginning Mathematics (pre-high school) through English for Action, Providence, RI. More information in Service Projects.
- August 2016: TA for GirlsGetMath@ICERM, a Summer Math Camp for High School Girls in the greater RI area
- Students learned topics such as modular arithmetic and fractals through lectures, worksheets, and daily Matlab labs and tutorials.
- During the day on Graphs and Applications, I gave a lecture accompanied by a worksheet on network applications (graph colorings, social network clustering, rumor/infection spread), and led a Matlab lab on spreading an epidemic on a network.
- Spring 2014: TA for APMA 0350, Methods of Applied Mathematics I
- Fall 2013: TA for APMA 1650, Statistical Inference I
- Summer 2016: Supervised two undergraduate students in an REU project on Lead propagation in the body, led by Professor Todd Kapitula, and three undergraduate students in an REU project on Stability of stripe patterns, led by Professor Björn Sandstede.
- Spring 2016 - Spring 2017: Met with mentees at least monthly to discuss course selection, career plans, research and graduate school as part of the Applied Math Undergraduate Mentorship Program.
- Academic year 2014, 2016: Academic buddy for an incoming Applied Math graduate student. Provided tips for settling in Providence, advice on course selection, and connection with the department community and resources for two incoming graduate students.
- Summer 2015: Supervised two undergraduate students in an REU project on Epidemic dynamics on networks, led by Professor Björn Sandstede. Provided feedback to the team during daily meetings as well as for their weekly progress presentations.
In the academic years 2013-2016, I served as the Division of Applied Mathematics' Sheridan Center Liaison
. I attended meetings every semester to discuss departmental teaching needs, and informed the department about new resources available through the Center.
In addition, I led the Inclusion and Diversity discussion at the first Teaching Assistant Orientations for graduate and undergraduate students in Applied Mathematics at Brown University (Fall 2016 and Spring 2017).
