I am an award-winning teacher at the University of Virginia. I have taught a diverse student body – over 400 students across 21 sections of four courses in two countries. I have taught courses in Comparative Politics, International Relations, Chinese politics, and Human Rights. I received the Best Graduate Teacher Award in recognition of pedagogical excellence and innovation, which fewer than 5% of instructors at the University of Virginia receive. I am able to teach core courses in Comparative Politics, International Relations, research method courses, area study courses in East Asia, and more advanced courses that are related to my research.
