Teaching is my passion. At the University of Arizona I have had the opportunity to teach or co-teach the following courses:
I have also had the opportunity to be a Graduate Teaching Assistant for the following courses at the University of Arizona:
I have also been privileged to guest lecture on a variety of topics including marriage, identity, attachment theory, and siblings.
Recently I was fortunate to complete the Office of Instruction and Assessment (OIA) Graduate Certification in College Teaching.
During my first two years at the University of Arizona I was the project manager for the National Science Foundation funded research project The Emergence of Cyberbullying from Middle Childhood to Adolescence: A Prospective Longitudinal Study, with principal investigators Dr. Sheri Bauman and Dr. Noel Card. This project was a three year longitudinal study examining technology use, peer aggression and victimization, cyber aggression and victimization in adolescent students in three school districts of Southern Arizona, their parents, and their teachers. For the final wave of data collection I created a new model measuring sibling aggression and victimization.
My master's thesis explored the relationship between peer aggression and sibling aggression. I look forward to analyzing data related to sibling relationships, particularly among emerging adults.
I am currently in my fourth year of graduate studies at the University of Arizona. My research is largely informed by my personal history and experiences. I grew up in a small Utah community as the youngest of nine children. I lived in South Korea for two years as a missionary and found the cultural differences to be very influential. I married into a multi-racial family (Peruvian/American) in 2009. My wife and my young daughter teach me the most about the importance of family and quality family relations.
