I have taught extensively at the undergraduate and master’s levels on topics relating to international relations, comparative politics, public policy, and research methods. Prior to pursuing my doctorate, I managed instructional development for online and hybrid courses in my areas of expertise at Harvard University, including the first ever Massive Open Online Course and Small Private Online Course produced for the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. A full list of courses I designed and taught in this capacity, alongside a full list of conventional classroom courses, is available on my C.V. A selection is included below.
Quantitative Techniques for Political Science
Instructor, Northeastern University, Spring 2019.
Description: This course covers basic statistical techniques and methods for social science, emphasizing applications of value to policymakers and researchers in the fields of political science, public policy, and international affairs. Topics covered include descriptive statistics, basic probability, binomial and normal probability distributions, hypothesis testing, differences-between-groups tests, correlation, linear regression, and multiple regression. In addition, students learn how to generate and interpret statistical analyses using SPSS. This course is taught primarily in SPSS due to software availability, with workshops introducing students to statistical programming in Stata and R.
