Teaching Philosophy

Undergraduate engineering education is an important starting point for engineers’ lifelong process of professional socialization. My mission is giving students the tools to be successful in the future as engineering practitioners. I especially seek to help students to be both socially responsible and technically competent. As an engineering education researcher with research expertise in engineering practice and ethics with a bachelor’s and master’s degree in chemical engineering, I am a qualified teacher who can help students achieve their educational goals. To better help students, I especially strive for: 1) actively bringing insights from my research into the classroom to prepare relevant and up-to-date teaching materials, 2) providing quick and constructive feedback to students to facilitate their learning, and 3) respecting my students because I truly believe that every student should feel welcome in my classroom.

In graduate mentoring, I grow with my students. Especially, as an early-career scholar who is just a few years ahead of new graduate students in a career pathway, we mutually learn from each other and grow together. I do believe my students' success is my success.
