I had the honor of receiving the “Teaching and Advising Award” from the Brown University Undergraduate Council of Students (UUCS). Given to only one Graduate Student per year, for having “made a substantial impact on the lives of undergraduates” (Spring 2013).
The Political Science Department Graduate Affairs Committee awarded me the P. Terrence Hopmann award for Excellence in Teaching, also for my work in the Introduction to the American Political Process (Spring 2013). This award is given to at least one student per semester, based upon student evaluations and faculty recommendations.
I also had the privilege of serving as the First Reader for an Undergraduate Thesis for the 2012-2013 Academic Year. I provided feedback on both quality of research as well as writing style, fostering a fruitful collaboration with my advisee.
I am pleased to be serving this year (2015-2016) as the Director of the Honors Thesis Seminar in Political Science.
