Teaching

UNDERGRADUATE COURSES

I have taught undergraduate courses regularly since 2001. I started as a Teaching Assistant at the University of Warwick (England), and then went on to teach as a Graduate Student Instructor at the University of Michigan, till 2007.

I have taught 16 different undergraduate courses, a total of 36 times, mainly in the areas of abstract algebra, topology, and calculus. The following is a complete list of these courses, arranged according to the institution where they were taught, the academic year and the corresponding semester or quarter.

GRADUATE COURSES

I have taught 9 different PhD doctoral level courses, a total of 13 times, mainly in the areas of symplectic geometry and topology and occasionally on mathematical analysis, particularly spectral theory and applications of PDE to geometry.

Most of these courses are second year graduate courses, meaning they are more specialized and require first year graduate courses (for example, a course on symplectic geometry requires a good knowledge of smooth manifolds, which is often taught as a first year graduate course). The following is a complete list of these courses, arranged according to the institution where they were taught, the academic year and the corresponding semester or quarter.
