Summer 2017


I was a teaching assistant for Summer@ICERM 2017 on Topological Data Analysis.

  • Summer@ICERM 2017 was an 8-week program that brought together undergraduate students across the United States and from around the world to learn about Topological Data Analysis (TDA).

  • The first four weeks of this program consisted of intensive course work on various topics in TDA such as simplicial homology, persistent homology, computational topology, metric geometry and stability, and time series analysis. During this time I offered a bootcamp on persistent homology. Some of my notes are available here.

  • In the last four weeks of the program the students worked in small groups (2-4 students per group) on open research questions in TDA and related fields. During this time I worked closely with 3 undergraduates, Erin Bugbee, Claire Savard and Jonathan Weisskoff, and the head faculty advisor Katherine Kinnaird (pictured top left) on a project that involved using methodes from topological data analysis to address music-based tasks.

Pedagogy Training

The Sheridan Reflective Teaching Seminar

Brown University 2016-2017
Developed and refined fundamental teaching and assessment strategies and communication skills based on how students learn. Completed a teaching observation to refelct on my teaching and met with teaching consultants to strategize ways to achieve teaching goals.

The Sheridan Teaching Consultant Program

Brown University 2017-2018
Developed and refined skills in peer observation and feedback, leadership, and discussion facilitation. Completed eight teaching observations across disciplines and met with teachers to discuss their teaching goals. Created a teaching portfolio.

The Sheridan Course Design Seminar

Brown University 2017-2018
Explored integrated course design principles and developed syllabi, assignments, and activities. Learned methods for inclusive teaching, engaged student learning, backward course design, signature pedagogies, and interdisciplinary communication.
