Teaching

This semester I am teaching Calc II (MATH1105). Last semester I taught Calc I (MATH1100) as well as an introduction to *p*-adic Hodge theory (MATH882201).

I taught the following classes while at Michigan:
Math 115 (Calc I), 3 semesters

Math 116 (Calc II), 2 semesters

Math 215 (Calc III), 1 semester (as Lab Instructor)
