I have enjoyed cultivating my skills as a teaching assistant for five professors, and an independent instructor in courses on statistic methods and organizations at UNC. My course evaluation score for the Formal Organizations and Bureaucracy course was 4.75/5 (where “5” is the highest score possible). I also worked as a statistical consultant at Odum Institute at UNC to help social scientists apply statistical methods in their research. As an Assistant Professor, I look forward to improving my teaching and mentorship skills by offering undergraduate and graduates courses on entrepreneurship, organizations, economic sociology, social inequality, the labor force, gender and family, linear regression, longitudinal analysis, structural equation modeling, survival analysis, and survey methodology.
