As a graduate student at Harvard, visiting lecturer at Amherst, or postdoctoral fellow for the Committee on Social Studies, I have had the pleasure of teaching undergraduates over a wide array of courses - under varying formats - with differing levels of responsibility. 

Whether in the role of section leader or seminar instructor, lecturer or workshop moderator, I have been attached to eleven different courses of instruction.  These courses have figured, alternatively, as elements in General Education and the Core Curriculum, or as departmental requirements, or as luxurious electives.  Taken together, their topics have ranged from contemporary research in empirical political science to the interpretation of Wittgenstein; from the history of modern social and political thought to the philosophy of science; from democratic theory to ancient ethics.  Among these courses number a writing-intensive seminar for sophomores, a research-intensive tutorial for juniors, a reading-intensive survey, and a collaborative workshop for seniors.  As an Assistant Head Teaching Fellow, I have organized instruction for hundreds of students and dozens of section leaders; by contrast, I have run advanced seminars with as few as three students. 

I have been awarded seven predoctoral teaching awards by Harvard's Bok Center for Teaching and Learning, for which I have also served as a Graduate Writing Fellow.  As a member of the Board of Advisers for the Committee on Social Studies, I have also supervised the academic formation of over a dozen undergraduates.  And, for my work as a postdoctoral lecturer, I have recently received a Certificate of Teaching Excellence from the Bok Center. 

Additional information on my teaching experience and interests can be found at the <Teaching> sub-pages linked to this page.  A statement of my teaching aims and methods is available upon request, as are official evaluations of my teaching and advising.
