As an educator, I am interested in developing project-based undergraduate science courses that incorporate field work, lab work, and/or chronological reading of primary literature. I seek to mimic the scientific process in undergraduate courses – e.g., reading journal articles, scientific writing, and collecting, processing, and presenting data. Furthermore, I strive to use inclusive teaching methods that create an open learning community and facilitate success for students from all backgrounds. I also love making students wrestle with data, both by reading primary literature and learning basics of biologically-relevant coding (primarily R and unix). My courses span by broad interest in biology, from field-based environmental courses to computational biology and bioinformatics.
