Work experience

Assistant Professor

Pacific Northwest College of Art
September, 2016 – Present (over 2 years)

I teach undergraduate courses that combine my interests in history, philosophy, politics, and the creative practice of writing. These range from broad historical surveys like Ancient Civilizations and The Cinematic Imagination, to surveys of political ideas like The History of Democracy and The History of Fascism, to more process-oriented courses like Research for a Creative Practice. My role extends to the supervision of independent studies, thesis research advising, and serving on thesis review boards.

Proofreader

The European Physical Journal
June, 2015 – September, 2017 (over 2 years)

I was an English-language proofreader for this highly regarded physical science journal headquartered in Paris, France. I proofread scientific papers in a range of fields, from nuclear physics to polymers, written by scientists from all over the world for whom English is a second language.

Associate Editor

King's Review Magazine
October, 2012 – June, 2015 (over 2 years)

I conducted interviews, reviewed article submissions, and advised on editorial decision making for this large-format print and online magazine founded and run by graduate students at King’s College, Cambridge University.

Academic Supervisor and Seminar Instructor

Cambridge University
September, 2012 – June, 2015 (over 2 years)

I was responsible for leading small group discussions, assigning essay topics, and giving detailed feedback on essays for third-year politics students, as part of the year-long course Political Philosophy and the History of Political Thought since 1890. I also led seminar-style group discussions on the topic “What is power?” for the Cambridge History Faculty’s undergraduate capstone course Historical Argument and Practice.
