I recently earned my PhD in Science and Technology Studies from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, where I studied the politics of environmental remediation at the Hanford Site (where the US made plutonium for weapons until the late 80's). It's a dangerous site. It's also dangerous to ask any graduate student about their dissertation, since we can go on for longer than the half-life of plutonium. Don't say I didn't warn you!
I am not only obsessed with things that glow in the dark. I am also fascinated with the social sciences, history, literature, philosophy, and writing. My M.A. is in anthropology, and my B.A. is in Sociology. When I tutor, I work hard to help you figure out why all of these subjects are worthy of your passion and effort.
I have taught first-year college students, as well as worked individually with thirteen undergraduates to plan, write, and revise their senior theses. My students have included undergraduate social science students as well as those pursuing engineering, science, and business. I have participated in environmental research programs with high school students, and helped to train student activists in places as different as Pullman, WA and Atlanta, GA.
I'm excited to work with you, too!
