Current Courses

I am not teaching any courses at this time. Below, you can see a description of past activities.

Work with EPGY

Since 2008, I have taught for Stanford's Education Program for Gifted Youth (EPGY). I have taught in a variety of programs, working with gifted students from a great variety of backgrounds.

Summer Institutes - High School Program

In the 2011-2012 academic year, I worked with Rick Sommer to found two new courses for EPGY's Summer Institutes, one in cryptography, and the other in game theory and decision analysis. In the summer of 2012, I taught the cryptography course, focusing on public key cryptography in an intensive (2.5 hours of lecture per day) 3-week course. The course is the focal point of a summer camp, in which the students go to lecture in the morning and work on problem sets and projects in the afternoon.

Summer Institutes - Middle School Program

In the summer of 2012, I taught an intensive (2.5 hours of lecture per week for 2 weeks) mathematics course for middle school students. We touched on a wide array of topics, including combinatorics and combinatorial topology, game theory, probability, and cryptography. This had a similar format as the high school class discussed above.

Stanford University Mathematics Camp

In the summers of 2008 and 2009, I served as a live-in counselor at the Stanford University Mathematics Camps (SUMaC). I served as an assistant for a four-week course in topology, guiding students through daily problem sets. I also led groups of students in individual research projects, focusing on combinatorial applications of the Borsuk-Ulam theorem.

Teaching Assistantships

Below is a list of courses I have been involved in and a brief description of my duties.
