At SF State Since:

Fall 2010


Hello, I have been teaching courses at San Francisco State University since my graduate program here in 2010. I completed my M.A. degree with the department of communication studies and have been teaching COMM 150: Fundamentals of Oral Communication, COMM 502GW: Interpersonal Communication, and COMM 661: Quantitative Methods as a lecturer since Fall 2013.

In addition to teaching at SFSU, I teach other courses in Interpersonal Communication, Critical Thinking & Persuasion, and Public Speaking at the University of San Francisco, City College of San Francisco, and Berkeley City College. 

My research interests are in Interpersonal Communication; specifically I study how technology impacts our romantic relational development over time. I examine, through quantitative research, how digital communication changes the communication rules each couple develops during their relationship.
