I enjoy facilitating the educational experience of students, especially as related to involving students in research. I have served as an instructor helping other university profs teach more effectively. During my PhD, I conducted research examining how to increase student engagement. During my PhD, I won the most prestigious award given to Graduate Students at the University of British for Excellence in Teaching: I was one of 16 winners (out of 2000+ graduate instructors) of the 2015-2016 UBC Killam Award. Today, I teach Negotiations to MBA students at the Harvard Business School and lead workshops on Behavioural Science to policy makers world-wide. I also contribute to HBS pedagogy: I am writing several cases exploring how technology can be used to scale social good and how incentive systems can both help and hinder employee productivity and well-being.
I have a successful track record of mentoring students toward graduate studies. Since 2013, I supervised 50+ undergraduate thesis students. During my academic career, I have written letters for and consulted with dozens of senior undergraduates, who are now PhD students at competitive graduate programs in the United States, Canada & Europe. Since 2017, I have run own lab group and am the primary or co-advisor of three graduate students in Organizational Behavior at the Harvard Business School. I also currently serve as the primary or co-advisor of two post-doctoral students at the Harvard Kennedy School of Policy.
