Teaching

Teaching informs my researchteaching

 

I find teaching to be a deeply rewarding and important activity. Teaching challenges and informs my research because it forces me to relay fundamental concepts in a simple and straightforward manner. I think it is important to frame and focus teaching around fundamental concepts and hypotheses that will prepare students to become responsible global citizens, effective communicators, and cutting-edge scientists. I incorporate hands-on activities to encourage student mastery of content covered in lectures and to support different learning styles and needs.
