I'm currently in a full-time research position. However, this page contains information about courses I've previously taught (my student evaluations can be found here). Instructors interested in using any of my materials (powerpoints, readings, and/or previous lecture recordings) should feel free to reach out. Last spring I began developing syllabi for Introduction to Philosophy, Philosophy of Race & Gender, Epistemology, and Philosophy of Technology, which I'm also happy to share.

 

At Rutgers, I was a member of the Philosophy Department's Climate Committee, faculty advisor to the Rutgers Undergraduate Cognitive Science Club, and faculty mentor to the Minorities in Cognitive Science (MiCS) group.

'COGNITIVE SCIENCE: A MULTIDISCIPLINARY INTRODUCTION'

A lower-division undergraduate course I was the lecturer and course organizer for. Between 500-600 students took the class each year, making it one of the most popular undergraduate courses at Rutgers. Content spaned philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, computer science, linguistics, and artificial intelligence. My original lecture slides and course materials are available upon request. 

I also supervised graduate student TAs, who ran weekly recitations with small groups of students and assisted with grading assignments. 

'ADVANCED TOPICS IN SOCIAL COGNITION'

 

An upper division course I taught for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. Readings covered topics in social cognition and were drawn from philosophy of mind, cognitive psychology, and social philosophy. Enrollment was capped at 19.

Course assessment emphasized the development of research skills. Students were required to deliver a polished presentation to the class and submit a long-form research paper.

'PHILOSOPHICAL ASPECTS OF COGNITIVE SCIENCE'

An upper division undergraduate course I taught, which surveyed key topics in philosophy of cognitive science, including mental representation, perception, concepts, belief, and language. Enrollment was capped at 25.

Students had to write and refine a philosophy paper during the course of the semester, which involved submitting an outline, meeting with me to discuss the outline, getting comments on a first draft, and finally submitting a polished final draft.
