Teaching Philosophy:
I believe that the purpose of education is to advance our knowledge by stimulating curiosity and encouraging students to seek answers.  As such, I see my role more as a facilitator who guides and motivates students to independent learning rather than as a lecturer who simply delivers knowledge. I believe that this approach fosters critical thinking and leads students to a more active role in learning. My teaching style is informal, but rigorous. I have an open-door policy with my students and I’m willing to discuss just about anything. It is my goal that my students relate to me both as a person and an instructor.

At California State University Long Beach, I teach the undergraduate capstone course in Strategic Management and undergraduate Organization Theory and Design. At the University of Southern California, I taught the undergraduate capstone course in Strategic Management and also served as a teaching assistant for several courses:
  • Global Strategy (graduate-level)
  • Human Behavior in Organizations (graduate-level)
  • Policy Formulation and Implementation
I also have extensive experience at other institutions as a lecturer for the following courses:
  • Introductory Economics
  • Introductory Statistics
  • Environmental Science
