At the LSE, I teach courses on qualitative methods. At Harvard, I taught courses on social theory, research design, crime, and health. ​


My teaching has been recognized by awards from the LSE (Excellence in Education and Student Union Teaching Awards) and Harvard (Derek Bok Teaching Awards)​.

With colleagues in the Department of Methodology at LSE, we have written a primer on Interviewing in the Social Sciences that we hope is helpful for students and seasoned qualitative researchers alike:​
