1. New Jersey Scholars Program

In the summer of 2015, I taught a course on “Climate Change and The Human Experience” as part of the New Jersey Scholars Program. NJSP is a tuition-free summer course for 39 of New Jersey’s top rising high school seniors, held at the beautiful Lawrenceville School campus in Lawrenceville, New Jersey. Teaching responsibilities included traditional lectures as well as Harkness table seminars.

2. Teaching workshops and seminars

I have also participated in several teaching workshops and seminars, including the 2015 ENGAGE workshop. The goal of the workshop was to engage geoscience researchers and geoscience educators in developing future geoscience and education research directions, as well as promoting networking among educators and researchers. The workshop was held in January 2015 in Arlington, VA, and was funded by the National Science Foundation.

While a graduate student at Carnegie Mellon University, I completed the Eberly Center Future Faculty Program, which included attending seminars, designing course materials and syllabi, and classroom observations.

3. Guest lecturer and TA positions

As a research scientist at Columbia, I have given lectures in atmospheric aerosols at the senior undergraduate and early graduate level in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences and the Chemical Engineering Department. As a senior graduate student at Carnegie Mellon University, I served as a frequent guest lecturer for two courses: Fundamentals of Atmospheric Aerosols and Air Quality Engineering. Topics covered by my lectures included inorganic aerosol thermodynamics and chemistry, aerosol and cloud optics, and air pollution meteorology. Throughout my graduate career, I served as a teaching assistant for four different classes. Duties included conducting office hours and review classes.
