Research

As a lecturer I am dedicated to being approachable, enthusiastic, inspiring and effective. I strive to create an interactive environment where students are given the opportunity to take risks and question accepted theories, leading to the development of critical thinking. My pedagogical interests include finding ways to increase student engagement with lecture and laboratory materials by providing students with transferrable concepts and skills. For example, I am integrating innovative scaffolded writing assignments into undergraduate courses in the Department of Cell and Systems Biology. As a necessary corollary to this goal, I am dedicated to investigating the best ways to train our TAs in order to facilitate the engagement of our undergraduate students in laboratories.
