Teaching Philosophy

Teaching for me is about truly connecting with students at their level, understanding their passions and motivations, and empowering them based on those insights. I firmly believe teaching a tandem dance between teacher and students. It is a dynamic, two-way street where the teacher and the student are actively engaged in the learning process. Merely lecturing without interaction or participation can lead to disengagement and hinder student performance. Effective teaching involves integrating theoretical concepts with real-world applications, creating an environment where learning is meaningful and enjoyable. The ultimate goal is to inspire curiosity, foster critical thinking, and equip students with the skills they need to succeed beyond the classroom.

Course Interests

For me, a faculty position involving balanced, research and teaching responsibilities is ideal. I believe a faculty member who is actively engaged in research is better equipped to facilitate student development. Specifically, I am ready to teach courses such as Intro to Cyber Security, Web and Network Security, and Systems Programming for undergraduate students, as well as Advanced Web Security for graduate students, without needing extensive preparation. Additionally, I am confident in my ability to teach Applied Machine Learning and Security with minimal preparation. My teaching approach will emphasize project-based learning as an effective applied methodology.

Teaching Experience: Instructor of Record

During my Ph.D. program at the University of New Orleans, I had an opportunity to teach two courses: Assembly Languages and Systems Programming Concept from Spring 2020 - Fall 2022. As an instructor, I created and taught study materials (syllabus, slides, home works, and exams) by following closely with ABET guidelines as instructed by the University board.
