Teaching and Mentorship Philosophy

My approach to teaching is grounded in making university classrooms inviting, equitable, and engaging spaces for all students, where differences in experience, skills, and perspective are celebrated and used as a platform for engaged, participatory learning. In my practice, this means challenging historical power dynamics of the classroom. I intentionally center historically marginalized voices (including scholars of color, indigenous scholars, disabled scholars, and LGBTQ+ scholars) in my curriculum and how I evaluate students. This includes multimodal assessments and centering individual goals and growth. I believe teaching and learning is most successful when all participants are able to bring their full self to the classroom, while simultaneously maintaining an open, respectful and generous mind towards their co-learners.

I am qualified and excited about teaching coursework in: human computer interaction, information science, qualitative methodologies, feminist and queer approaches to computing and security, media communication ecosystems, and
