Stanford University Courses
  • Substitute Lecturer and Teaching Assistant for Professor David Miller, EE65: Modern Physics for Engineers, 28 undergraduate students, Spring 2016.
    • Sample student evaluation: Marina gave several outstanding lectures in Prof. Miller's absence and also provided extremely useful office hours where she would lead student's to the brink of discovery and let them make the final connections themselves in a fashion that reinforced learning and ensured that we truly understood the problem-solving techniques. She was most useful at breaking down complex formulas and helping me understand why each part was how it was.

  • Teaching Assistant, EE340: Optical Micro- and Nano- Cavities for Professor Jelena Vuckovic, 39 graduate students, Spring 2015.
    • Sample student evaluation: Great at explaining things, also very responsive to email which is a huge help.
