My foremost pedagogical intention is to seriously engage students with some of the most significant problems of our time.

I think it is crucial for students to work through conceptual, philosophical, ethical, and interpretive questions in a rigorous, scholarly manner, but at the same time, for them to see how these seemingly "academic" issues actually have real-world consequences. I hope that my students will continue to find that the content of my classes not only prepares them for their professions but also helps them develop their own frameworks for making sense of their work, their lives, and their world.
