Biography

Since the fall of 2020, I have been teaching Computer Science and related subjects at the Horace Mann School Upper Division. I am a devoted learner turned teacher and dedicated to expanding the perspectives of STEM education towards a more ethics focused, human centered approach to technology, math, and science.

In 2019 and early 2020, I was a Fulbright fellow in Málaga, Spain where I taught university level computer science and related communication skills including design and human computer interaction. My grant was cut short due to covid and I came home to New York where I began searching for opportunities to teach.

Since joining Horace Mann, I have focused my practice on the ethical questions surrounding technology and computer science education. Alongside my department, I have developed a robust curriculum of courses covering programming fundamentals and advanced topics such as theoretical computer science, data science, as well as software design and engineering.

My main areas of focus are at the many intersections of Computer Science and the humanities – I believe that the difference between a decent engineer and a great one is the ability to communicate complex concepts in a clear way, to understand real world problems and imagine solutions, and to listen to others and empathize with others.
