University Teaching Award

In Spring 2020, I received the University Teaching Award for my role as head teaching assistant in Introduction to American Politics taught by Professor Paul Frymer. I received this award during the start of the COVID pandemic—the class actually switched from in-person to remote midway through our semester. I maintained the same pedagogy and emphasis on participation and I found that my students were hungry for the sort of community and academic discourse they no longer had due to the pandemic.

Introduction to Data Analysis in R (Undergraduate)

Latinx Politics (Undergraduate)

Emory University, Instructor (Spring 2024)

In this class, I explain the basics of data analysis and how to apply those skills towards your research objectives. General topics include the creation and structure of data, coding in R using packages such as dplyr and ggplot, cleaning data, and producing effective regression tables and visualizations. This course will use R, which is an open-source (and free) coding language that is widely used by academic researchers. My goal is that by the end of this class, you will have the necessary skills to read and critically analyze academic research and to provide detailed analyses and discussions of your results.


Emory University, Instructor

In this course, we examine the past, present, and future of Hispanic and Latina/o/x politics in the United States. Topics include the history of conquest, colonization, and immigration that gave rise to the Latina/o/x population in the United States, cultural and institutional forces that generate and sustain Latina/o/x identities, differences and similarities in the experiences of Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Dominican, Central American, and other national origin groups, the historical and contemporary political preferences, behaviors, and representation of Latina/o/x potential voters, and how the growing Latina/o/x pop- ulation will shape American politics going forward.

The American Presidency (Undergraduate)

Princeton University, Teaching Assistant

We covered various topics related to the personal and institutional aspects of the American presidency. These include the origin, nature, uses and limits of presidential power; the presidential selection process; the relationship between the President and other significant political actors--Congress, the Press, executive branch agencies, and the public; presidential accountability and the importance of presidential personality.

Qualitative Methods (Graduate)

Princeton University, Teaching Assistant

Taught by Professor Layna Mosley (Spring 2021)

During this course, we examined the use of qualitative methods in social science research. Topics include the design of research projects and the conduct of research, including the use of elite interviews, interviews with members of the mass public, archival materials and secondary materials. The course also addresses the ethical conduct of research involving human participants, as well as the use of qualitative approaches as part of multi-method research projects. The qualitative work discussed is drawn from across the political science discipline. Also emphasized is the application of qualitative research methods to the research currently being conducted by students.
