UNC Service

In addition to my role as Teaching Assistant Professor, I serve as my department's Director of Instructional Development. I am a member of my department's Diversity Committee (Teaching Subcommittee Co-Chair). At the university-level, I have worked with the Center for Faculty Excellence as a grant (Large Course Redesign) panel reviewer and I am a member of the Study Abroad for the Sciences working group (Study Abroad Office). I led a UNC program at King's College London and I advise three student organizations. I am passionate about the interface of teaching and research and as such, helped develop the Carolina Teaching & Learning Colloquium.

Candidate Statement

I am running for a position on the General Education Oversight Committee to ensure all Carolina students can thrive in rigorous class, lab, and applied settings. A strong general education curriculum underlies these opportunities. One of the key charges of the General Education Oversight Committee is to “… oversee assessment, examine results, and propose curricular change.” As a social psychologist by training, I have a strong background in methodology, statistics, and evaluation. As my department’s Director of Instructional Development, I have a passion for disseminating evidence-based teaching and learning strategies. Taken together, I believe my methodological/statistical knowledge base paired with my teaching/instructional development focus make me uniquely qualified to serve the Carolina community in this capacity.
