In the Fall 2019 semester, I am working as a Teaching Assistant for BIOSTAT 232, Methods I, at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health/Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, taught by Professor Brent Coull. This course, aimed at first-year Ph.D. students in biostatistics, covers a wide variety of statistical methods, focusing on applications in medicine and public health. The course content includes both the theoretical foundation of these methods and their application to real data problems.
I am also working as a Teaching Fellow for GENED 1129, Infectious Diseases and Social Injustice, at Harvard College, taught by Professors Donald Goldmann and Kenneth McIntosh. With undergraduates at every level and from every discipline, this highly interactive course teaches students about the biology and epidemiology of infectious diseases and connects these aspects to the social context of disease burden. With a special focus on health disparities and marginalized populations, the course connects laboratory science, medicine and public health, and a wider understanding of politics, society, and culture.
In the past, I have been a primary instructor for the Biostatistics Department’s summer preparatory course for incoming Ph.D. student. With two co-instructors, we designed the course, prepared the syllabus, and created and delivered the course materials. This course covered topics from linear algebra, calculus, optimization, programming, and probability and statistics.
I have also previously worked as a Teaching Assistant at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health for BST 223, Applied Survival Analysis (Spring 2019), BST 232, Methods I (Fall 2018), and BST 216, Introduction to Quantitative Methods for Monitoring and Evaluation (Spring 2018). These courses, which serve students in various programs and departments at the school, cover a wide variety of statistical content and link that content to the real data analysis work that underlies public health research.
