I have been blessed by the opportunity to learn from great teachers.
Therefore, I always aspire to bring to my own students the same wonderful
experience. My pedagogy was recognized by Hunter College through the
Cecile Insdorf Award
for Excellence in Teaching, which I received in 2009 when I was teaching
part time at the college. However, I am mostly humbled and rewarded
by the recognition and appreciation that I receive from my students on a regular basis. Here are some examples.
While I primarily focus on my research, I am also
constantly developing new pedagogy to teach about computer science and other related inter-disciplinary fields.
I occasionally publish my methods, which lie in the intersection of scientific research and education:

I am a member of the steering committee for the Quantitative Biology
program at Hunter College. I am also a member of the CUNY Math Challenge committee.
I am an Integrator at MoMATH where I help kids and parents explore mathematics. I am currently researching new ways to teach about counting, which is a at the heart of combinatorial analysis, and thus an essential part of a well rounded computer science education.
Here's my reseach project on teaching to count.
I hope you will find in the courses below information that will benefit you. Feel free to contact me for any questions.
