In my teaching, I seek to improve student understanding of biological concepts while also helping them develop the skills they need as biologists. For example, I include assignments and readings designed to increase student confidence in reading and interpreting scientific literature. I also work to engage students by illustrating the ways class content can be applied to other areas of their education and their lives.
I regularly teach the following classes:
General Biology (BIO 105)
Organismal Biology (BIO 203)
Ecology (BIO 307)
Plant Ecology (BIO 456/556)
Senior Capstone (BIO 491)
