I take great delight and care in teaching and engaging with students. Teaching is one of the most tangible forms of public sociology, and thus I approach teaching with a desire to cultivate an empathic and inclusive learning environment for my students by addressing my power and privilege, identifying the central inequities that pattern social processes (including knowledge production), and systematically researching best practices in the literatures on teaching and learning. 

At Temple University I teach courses at the undergraduate and graduate level, such as Introduction to Sociology for Pre-Health Students (1576)Urban Health (3525/8421), and Medical Sociology (2530/8391) (see syllabi below).
