This semester I'm teaching Calc 1 (check ELC) and Smooth Topology (here).

I'm interested in intersections between math and civics. Last spring I attended the "Geometry and Gerrymandering" conference at the University of San Francisco. Since then I've given talks in UGA's Math club, supervised a project at UGA's MathCamp for high schoolers, and am currently supervising an Athens high schooler on an AP Research project about gerrymandering.

Previously at UGA I've taught Calculus 1, Calculus 2, Applied Linear Algebra, Differential Geometry of Curves and Surfaces, and Topics in Geometry and Topology (Knot Theory). I taught Calculus 1 and 2 (for non-science majors) and Finite Probability with Applications at Boston College. I also assisted with a Boston College summer enrichment program for mathematically-inclined high schoolers.

Before coming to Boston College, I TA'd sections of Pre-Calculus, Calculus 2 (for science majors), and Linear Algebra. I also tutored for first-year physics and math courses and provided drop-in help for all math classes.

My teaching style is rooted in my experiences with informal education, both as an Exhibit Supervisor at the Boston Museum of Science and in half a dozen roles at a summer camp.
