My research and teaching are interdependent. Teaching well is the ultimate test of my own grasp of theories that pushes me to think about complex ideas in terms of their most fundamental components. For example, my classes employ an intersectional lens of Marxist Feminism when unpacking city development and migrations as a way to understand social hierarchies and everyday life. I achieve this by combining in-class lectures and discussions with field trips, autoethnography assignments, and mapping exercises. These strategies enable students to make sense of complex urban and social theories by putting them into dialogue with real-world experiences. I teach classes in urban studies, urban planning, and intersectional politics.
