I have had the opportunity to design and teach a range of graduate and undergraduate courses in statistics, research methods, higher education and sociology. In my courses, I encourage students to use theory to develop and assess explanations for the relationships evident in the social world. I emphasize the critical evaluation of empirical research in all of my courses to provide students with the skills necessary to be critical consumers of research. In my graduate courses I also integrate the development of original research or applied projects so that students themselves can be good producers of social research. I received the William K. Bunis Graduate Student Teaching Award in recognition of the quality of my teaching from the School of Sociology at the University of Arizona in 2011.
