In fall 2023 I will be teaching math 1234, an academically based community service (ABCS) class offered in partnership with the Netter Center and Paul Robeson High School in West Philadelphia. You can read about a previous instantiation of this class in Penn Today.

I serve as faculty organizer for the Penn Directed Reading Program (DRP). Note that applications for undergraduate participants are open in the first week of each semester on the website. You can read more about the Penn DRP in OMNIA magazine, and my own reflections about the program in Penn Almanac.

Past teaching

With the Prison Teaching Initiative at Princeton:

Spring 2023: Math in the Courtroom at South Woods Prison (elective for the B.A. degree)
Spring 2022: Math 015, Basic Mathematics at South Woods Prison
Fall 2021: Math 020, College Mathematics at Garden State Correctional Facility

The Penn collaboration with the Prison Teaching Initiative is supported by a Klein Family Social Justice grant through the School of Arts and Sciences.

Math in the Courtroom is a class we have designed as a first math elective for the B.A. degree in criminal justice offered inside NJ prisons and accredited by Rutgers University. This class was featured in OMNIA magazine, Changing the Equation for the Incarcerated, pages 46-47.

The math 123 class that I taught in the fall '20 and fall '21 semesters, an academically based community service class (ABCS) class offered in partnership with the Netter Center, was featured in a great article in Penn Today.

Together with Jonathan Block and Herman Gluck, in the summer of 2020 and in the summer of 2021, we organized an online bridge workshop in algebraic topology aimed to prepare students for the 618-619 graduate sequence, which was geared toward beginning graduate students, undergraduates with some background in topology, and anyone else with an interest in topology.
