Teaching Assistant to Dr. Annette Bickford (Department of Social Science)
Course: Introduction to Social Science
From September 2017 to April 2018 (Two Semesters)
This course introduces social science as a system of knowledge addressing social life, the scientific study of socio-cultural, geographic, anthropological, socio-legal, economic, political, and historical forces. The course explores power relations exercised through social, political, economic, cultural and historical relations between the Global North and South. The course culminates with explorations of ways and means forward that could be employed to build a socially just and sustainable future.

Course: The City: Theories and Methods in Urban Studies
From January 2016 to May 2016
This course intends to familiarize students with the study of cities as pursued in disciplines such as sociology, geography, and anthropology. The course is organized in a loosely historical sequence – from the industrial and the colonial cities of the late nineteen century to the city-regions of the present. The course focuses on exploring the changes and continuities of spatial forms in/of the city (e.g., the shopping mall, suburbs and exurbs, the concentric city and the city region). Furthermore, the course pays a particular emphasis on social organizations (e.g., ghettos, ethnic suburbs, gated communities) and the equally changing concepts and theories that accompany the material changes of the city.
Graduate Student Instructor with Prof. John Ellis (College of Environmental Design)
Course: Urban Design: City-Building and Place-Making
From August 2015 to December 2015
This course introduces students to the field of urban design with the goal of providing a foundation for understanding the various aspects of urban design, i.e., the role that urban design plays within the development process and the critical issues urban designers face today. The course relies heavily on learning about cities through fieldwork conducted on four field trips to various neighborhoods of San Francisco. The course aims to create an understanding of human settlement patterns as they relate to planning and urban design based on knowledge of relevant concepts and theories from the design arts (architecture, landscape architecture, and urban design). The course focuses on the relationship between the design of the built environment and its functional, aesthetic and social precedents and consequences as well as historical and contemporary urban design practice, policy and processes of administration and implementation of plans, and related policies, including relevant regulations (zoning, form-based codes, review processes) incentives, techniques and agencies conducting planning and urban design.

Course: Global Health: A Multidisciplinary Examination
From January 2015 to May 2015
This course explores good health at the individual and community level as central to human happiness, economic development, and societal progress. Good health, which is not simply the absence of illness and injury, is the result of the complex interplay of many factors, including the legal, social, political, and physical environments, economic forces, food availability and nutrition, access to safe water and sanitation, cultural beliefs and human behaviors, religion, and the availability of affordable preventive measures such as vaccines and of curative services, among others. By definition, global health transcends geo-political borders and standard academic disciplines, so a broad multi- disciplinary approach to its study and understanding is required.
