## Teaching

I am not teaching this semester.

In the past, I was a:
TA for * COMS 4771: Machine Learning* (Su22)
TA for * COMS 3251: Computational Linear Algebra* (Su22)
instructor for * COMS W3203-001: Discrete Mathematics* (Fa21)
TA for * COMS W4995-004: Geometric Data Analysis* (Sp21)
In spring 2022, I helped with organizing a seminar on Non-Euclidean Embeddings in Computational Biology.

Prior to Columbia, I was a part of the wonderful teaching community at UC Berkeley:

co-instructor for * CS70: Discrete Mathematics and Probability Theory * (Su20)
TA for * CS70: Discrete Mathematics and Probability Theory * (Su18, Sp19)
TA for * CS170: Algorithms and Complexity Theory * (Fa18)
