I am deeply invested in teaching and mentoring. At Columbia, I have served as a teaching assistant for courses in the Department of Sociology, and value the opportunity to help my students critically understand and engage with sociological concepts and the broader social worlds(s) that they are a part of. I also enjoy working with them as they move from being consumers of knowledge to researchers, and active participants in the creation of knowledge. In this vein, I work with the Barnard College Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellowship program as a mentor for students of color who are interested in pursuing careers in academia. I provide mentorship as students develop their own research projects, apply to graduate school, and learn how to navigate the world of research and academia. Finally, as an undergraduate student at Brown University, I was active in several community and peer mentorship programs.
