Teaching is one of my greatest joys. At Rice, I was a teaching assistant for:
- NEUR/PSYC 362: Cognitive Neuroscience (Spring ’16, ’17, ’18)
- NEUR/CAAM 416: Neural Computation (Spring ’18)
- I contributed a lecture on Bayesian Causal Inference in perception.
- NEUR/BIOC 385: Fundamentals of Neuroscience (Fall ’16, ’17)
- STAT 310: Probability and Statistics (Fall ‘16)
- PSYC 203: Intro to Cognitive Psychology (Fall ’15)
Before I left the Yau Lab, I gave a little tutorial on model building and fitting [slides].
But by far my favorite teaching endeavor has been COLL 158: “How Music Plays the Brain.” I designed and taught 3 semesters of this seminar course on the intersection of music and neuroscience.
“Students will leave this course having developed a greater appreciation for the power of music through dialogues between an age-old art and a budding field of science.” – lofty goals (aka the course syllabus)
Well, did I fulfill my promises? 😛
