Teaching

I have had a very rich experience as a teaching assistant and instructor for classes, which range from introductory applied statistics for medical researchers to theoretical statistics for PhD students such as empirical process theory. I hold a certificate of distinction and excellence in teaching from the Harvard Derek Bok Center, for receiving an evaluation of 4.9/5 as a teaching fellow for the class “Statistical Inference II” taught by Profs. Andrea Rotnizky and Giovanni Parmigiani.
