As a dedicated teacher, I strive to work with students in ways that model and foster genuine curiosity, deep critical thinking, and concern for real-world issues, and to do so through engaging and accessible pedagogy. Interdisciplinary inquiry shapes the courses I teach and the ways I help students engage their own critical questions. My courses engage students in the areas of cultural studies, global studies, language, and literature and film, and my teaching experience includes work with undergraduate and graduate students at institutions in the US and the Netherlands.

At Cornell I launched a new interdisciplinary migrations course in Fall 2020, and I support students enrolled in the migration studies minor. While a PhD student at the Ohio State University I designed and taught introductory and upper-level courses in Comparative Studies, and I also taught Italian language in the French and Italian Department.

My experience also includes positions in Communication in Science at the Leiden University Medical Centre, where I taught academic writing, and in the humanities at SUNY - Purchase College in New York, where I completed pedagogical training. In Italy I worked in residence life with students spending a semester or year abroad. A core of my experience has been in interdisciplinary instruction in higher education.
