Ph.D., Harvard University

I have taught at Humboldt since the spring of 2007, offering courses in the history of East Asia, China, Japan, and the Soviet Union, as well as a course in world history for future teachers. My courses not only help students to understand the relevant historical content, but also provide students an opportunity to practice their skills as historians – critical reading & thinking skills, research methods, historical writing, and oral debate and presentation.
