My interest for teaching is one of the motivating factors for pursuing an academic career. I taught several courses in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Texas at El Paso in Fall 2014 (CS 1310-Computational Thinking and CS 1320-Introduction to Programming for Scientists and Engineers) and Spring 2015 (CS 1310-Computational Thinking and CS-Introduction to Computer Science). These courses introduced problem solving and analytical thinking. Computational thinking additionally covered various technical and non-technical aspects of computing.

During my PhD at Virginia Tech and MS at Montana State University-Bozeman, I was a teaching assistant for a number of courses and lab sessions including Programming in Java, Numerical Method, and Theory of Computation. My experience on teaching a variety of courses to a diverse audience has profoundly shaped my teaching philosophy.

Outreach


I served in the Association for Women in Computing both at UTEP and Virginia Tech. I assisted outreach programs for various groups (www.computingportal.org/outreach). I was also involved in mentor programs including MAP and REU programs.
