I'm committed to creating inclusive spaces in the academy, as well as promoting rigorous interdisciplinary research. 

At the University of Chicago, I've had the opportunity to design and teach interdisciplinary classes. In my capacity as a Senior Fellow at the Chicago Center for Teaching, I've led workshops on  inclusive teaching for other graduate students in the Humanities Division.
