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’s my goal that my students relate to me both as a person and an instructor.   


At the University of Southern California, I’ve taught the undergraduate capstone course in Strategic Management (BUAD 497).  I’ve also served as a teaching assistant for several courses: 

  • Strategic Management (Fall 2014)
  • Human Behavior in Organizations (Summer 2012)
  • Policy Formulation and Implementation (Spring 2012)

I also have extensive experience at other institutions as a lecturer for the following courses:

  • Introductory Economics
  • Introductory Statistics
  • Environmental Science
