Most recently, I have been a lecturer at UW's Center for Statistics and the Social Sciences, teaching the large undergraduate gateway course Statistical Concepts And Methods For The Social Sciences.

I have been the primary instructor for the undergraduate course Political Science as a Social Science

I am also currently a consultant at the Center for Social Science Computation and Research, where I develop and teach short training courses in software for research and statistical analysis (in particular R and ATLAS.ti). Short courses I have developed include:

  • Data Wrangling in R
  • R Graphics with ggplot2
  • Introduction to Interactive Graphics in R
  • Introduction to Qualitative Data Analysis with Atlas.ti.


I have also worked as a teaching assistant (classroom/lab section instructor) for the following political science courses:


  • Advanced Quantitative Political Methodology

Links to basic R and LaTeX resources pulled together for my graduate lab sections are available here

  • Introduction to Political Theory
  • Urban Politics
  • Mass Media and Politics in America

Previously, I also served as a graduate writing tutor at the Political Science Writing Center working with graduate students to improve their social science writing in the preparation of term papers, papers for publication, proposals, and theses.
