I have a PhD in Microbiology and have taught undergraduate and graduate level Biology courses for many years. I am passionate about science education and encourage my students to rediscover the joy in learning science. Often students get discouraged by difficult courses, and their immediate coping mechanism is to memorize, memorize, memorize. My goal is to help students (finally!) understand the material so that memorization is not necessary. In my free time I enjoy cooking, reading, and spending time with family and friends.
