Candidate Statement

I am passionate about undergraduate education and spend as much time each day talking to and working with our amazing students here at Carolina. As an Associate Teaching Professor, my focus has centered on the large, introductory physics classes where I interact with students from a wide variety of majors and experiences. My service work revolves around the same emphasis - making the educational experience for our undergraduates as equitable, engaging and rewarding as possible. Working on the Educational Policy Committee would be an extension of this same focus, moving beyond my own department.
