Political Science PhD candidate focusing on American institutions




 The Use of Social Science Computer Programs

In Fall 2016 I taught the introduction to social science computing course for first year Ph.D. students in the Political Science department. This course was an entry-level course in R programming, with a focus on data manipulation, cleaning and visualization.

In the Spring/Summer term of 2018 I was the instructor of record for POLSCI 111, Introduction to American Politics. This course used the The American Political System (Kollman 2017) and Readings in American Politics: Analysis and Perspectives (Kollman 2018) to introduces students to the foundations of American Politics.
