Academic Work Experience and Training

Graduate Teaching Assistant (Since 09/2021)
University of Glasgow
I teach labs to second year undergraduate students as part of the QStep programme which is designed to promote a step-change in quantitative social science training. The courses I teach on include an introduction to using quantitative methods (QM1: Measuring Your Social World) and a follow-up course that expands on QM1 and introduces OLS regression (QM2: Analysing Your Social World). The labs are especially focused on using the statistical software R.

I assisted in a research project within the School of Education which inquired how class relates to higher education outcomes and the willingness to take on quantitative methods training.
My role was to help design and carry out a survey, execute data cleaning, and offer a preliminary descriptive data analysis.
