Advising

I am proud to participate in the Harvard community as a formal advisor and an informal mentor to undergraduate students. I believe that being an effective teacher and advisor is essential to being a good academic.

I am the primary academic advisor for about 35 political science undergraduates and mentor many other students in my role as a resident tutor at Harvard College. In 2019, I was awarded the Star Family Prize for Excellence in Concentration Advising for this academic advising capacity. I have also advised undergraduate senior honors theses.

From July to October 2019, I served as the Interim Allston Burr Resident Dean of Quincy House at Harvard College. I was responsible for the academic and personal well-being of ~470 students and supervision of the House's ~20 resident tutors. In this role, I was also a member of the College's Administrative Board (the body which enforces undergraduate academic policies and social conduct standards).
