Whether I'm teaching the social meaning of the body, or how to craft a research question, my approach is consistent: I aim to provide students with the tools necessary to succeed both inside the classroom and beyond it. My teaching emphasizes the importance of the sociological imagination, ethical research, creative thinking, and clear, organized writing.
