Students practice seining in the Forest River, Salem, MA
My educational experiences laid a foundation for me to become a successful scientist and I aim to provide the same foundation for my students. My teaching emphasizes fundamental biological concepts using student-centered and experiential teaching methods. In all courses, I strive to develop students' appreciation for biology, enhance their critical thinking skills, and create and inclusive learning environment. Whenever possible, I include laboratory and field studies to improve students' understanding of course material while allowing them to gain hands-on experience with scientific methods.
