I am committed to providing high quality teaching. I have designed and taught (1) a face-to-face undergraduate course on deviance, crime, and social control, and (2) an online undergraduate course on sociological research methods. I also served as a lab instructor for sociological research methods and served as TA for various courses including social class; criminology; institutions of social control; and sociology of law.

I am particularly interested in teaching: deviance, crime and social control; criminological theory; community and crime; community and urban sociology; and social research methods.
