I am passionate about teaching and have taught both methodological and topical courses for undergraduate, Masters, and PhD students in public health. Equity and social justice are central themes in my teaching and I strive to promote welcoming and inclusive learning environments.
I served as a teaching assistant for the following courses at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health:
- Epidemiologic Methods (undergraduate, Masters, and PhD-level courses)
- Social Epidemiology
- Proposal Development and Grant Writing
- Methods in Health Equity Research
- Methods for Assessing Power, Privilege, and Public Health in the United States
I also assisted with course design for “Methods for Assessing Power, Privilege, and Public Health in the United States” as well as a Coursera specialization in “Epidemiology in Public Health Practice.”
As a PhD student at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, I co-led the Social Epidemiology Student Organization, facilitating monthly journal clubs and organizing an annual lectureship. Additionally, as a member of the Epidemiology Inclusion, Diversity, Equity & Science (Epi-IDEAS) Workgroup, I co-led a subcommittee focused on training opportunities to promote competency in social justice-oriented research, science communication, and advocacy.
I have given guest lectures in the following classes:
- Advanced Topics in Social Epidemiology (Johns Hopkins School of Public Health)
- Epidemiologic Practice Methods for Population Health Research (Johns Hopkins School of Public Health)
- Medicine, Literature, and Spanish (Bowdoin College)
- Health Care Financing and Organization (UCLA Fielding School of Public Health )
