computational and statistical methods to students with broader
At the University of Washington, I twice taught a course in integral
calculus, with an emphasis on applications in the biological and social
sciences. The challenge as an instructor was to teach a course that was
meaningful for students who were more interested in learning how to
apply math, than doing math for its own sake. (Sample syllabus is here.) I have also assisted several professors in
the College of the Environment in statistical and mathematical courses
with a similar applied emphasis.
As an undergraduate student, I tutored in the math and physics
departments for two years at Moravian College.
Upon graduation, I taught high
school courses in math and physics, and Advanced Placement Statistics
Collegiate School (now Trinity-Byrnes Collegiate School).
I am also interested in supervising graduate students with research
interests in computational epidemiology, network science, and
