At Berkeley, Steven devotes much of his time to peer tutoring through the Student Learning Center. Each week, he works with students to cover problems and concepts pertaining to intermediate microeconomics. In addition, he works with his fellow peer tutors to facilitate pre-exam review sessions for hundreds of students. Steven also tries to read about new learning strategies and current pedagogy, and implement them into the work he does.

Steven is involved in behavioral research at the Haas School of Business. Some of his past work investigates perceptions of competence and warmth, leadership, and team performance under stress. His time is spent conducting recorded case interviews with research participants and later analyzing the videos for para-verbal cues. He is grateful for the many opportunities that the research has afforded him, whether it be learning from brilliant researchers or travelling to Napa Valley to help facilitate leadership training.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~Marianne Williamson
