Teaching

Teaching Philosophy: I enjoy incorporating games and simulations to my courses as well as introducing students to computational and quantitative techniques such as mapping and image recognition. I have extensive experience in teaching online, hybrid and traditional formats, on platforms such as Echo360, Blackboard, Angel, and traditional LSMs.
