Teaching Focus

I deeply enjoy teaching broadly at the undergraduate, graduate and post-doctoral levels including clinical interns and residents in psychology and psychiatry. I have diverse research, training and education in multidisciplinary subjects and pursue a highly inclusive, multi-modal and multidisciplinary teaching practice.

Teaching areas of primary focus include: Public/International and Global Health, Clinical Psychology/Counseling, Socio/Cultural and Medical Anthropology, Public Policy, Health Education, Development studies, Medical Humanities, Area Studies (Southern Africa and North America), Research Methods/Statistics, Social Theory and/or special topics courses based on my areas of expertise.

Teaching Approach

I am particularly interested in facilitating experimental and inclusive pedagogy, learning and teaching practices in multi-modal, cross-disciplinary and experimental courses, particularly focusing on social, economic, cultural and political themes. I am especially excited about teaching innovative methodologies in visualizing multi-disciplinary phenomena whether in graphical information systems (GIS), artificial intelligence (AI)/machine learning (ML), novel approaches to qualitative analysis and similarly situated multi-modal approaches. I have a pointed interest in teaching which also focuses on global social medicine/global health, pluralistic health systems, healing in scarcities, dis-ease, authority, inequality and on the materiality of built and socially constructed spaces/places, particularly in relation to spaces of healing such as the clinic.
