Teaching

I have taught courses in sociology, women’s studies, and psychology focusing on research methodologies, gender, sexuality, and feminist perspectives on science. I have served as a primary course instructor, graduate student assistant, and independent study supervisor and have sought additional training in pedagogy as part of my graduate education. Outside the classroom, I have consulted on qualitative interviewing methods for public health scholars engaged in mixed-methods population-based research.
