One of the best parts of my job is working with curious, engaged, and passionate students.

At UW-Madison, I teach what we think is the largest class on women, gender, and health in the country (GWS 103). You can check out the syllabus here: GWS 103 Fall 2017 syllabus. The course was created by amazing women over 40 years ago, and I’m honored to keep the 103 tradition going with my current GWS colleagues. Last summer, for the six time, we offered the new-and-improved online version of the course to over 200 students.

A brief example of a video from the online course can be found here.

I also sometimes teach an upper-level course called “Gender, Sexuality, and Reproduction: Public Health Perspectives” (now with a course number of GWS 534). Please click here for a syllabus: GWS 533 fall 2012. And you can check out my syllabus for a graduate seminar on “Gender and Health” here: GWS 950 spring 2013.

Before arriving at UW-Madison, I taught Qualitative Data Analysis at Columbia University and Introduction to Women’s Studies at Emory University.

In 2011, I won the Early Career Teaching Award from Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health.

In 2015, I won the Emil Steiger Teaching Award from University of Wisconsin-Madison.
