The opportunity to spread my passion for learning, share my knowledge and experience with curious young minds and teach them love learning are among the key motivations that inspired me to choose an academic career. I have experienced research and teaching going hand in hand. Research brings up interesting materials to teach whereas teaching surfaces further questions that speak to future research. Developing new and exciting teaching materials and techniques that also keep the course challenging for me contribute to my predilection for teaching. During my talk, I will describe how I have prepared for a teaching career and my teaching philosophy, and how the lecturer position offered by CSE department of the University of Rochester can lead me in achieving my career goal.
