Teaching at U Pitt's i3!

I am so excited! I feel so honored to have been selected to be 1 of 4 PhD teaching fellows this year at the iSchool Inclusion Institute (i3) at The University of Pittsburgh.

The iSchool Inclusion Institute is an undergraduate research and leadership development program that prepares students from underrepresented populations for graduate study and careers in the information sciences. Only 25 students (27 this year) from across the country are selected each year to become i3 Scholars. Those students undertake a yearlong experience that includes two summer institutes hosted by the University of Pittsburgh School of Computing and Information and a research project spanning the year.

Fellow UT iSchoolers have participated as PhD fellows (Rachel Simons and Daniel Carter). One of them, now an alumni, is returning as a research advisor. I feel so proud to represent the UT iSchool along side my peers! I will be teaching the research design module alongside Brooke Auxier (University of Maryland).

This is my first time in Pittsburgh and I am so looking forward to interacting with the brilliant and hardworking students this summer!
