I graduated from Clark University in 2004 with my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology and a minor in Mathematics. I received my Ph.D. in 2011 with a concentration in Emerging Infectious Diseases. During my graduate studies, I was a teacher's assistant for the Medical Parasitology lab. I was able to help instruct medical and graduate students as well as working professionals. Additionally, I acquired a great deal of hands on teaching experience from my work in the laboratory. While in the lab, I was able to have spontaneous teaching moments while training new laboratory technicians and fellow students.
I am very passionate about science and math, which comes through in my teaching style. I am a firm believer in adapting to each individual student so that they can have the best experience and really learn the material.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
Each person learns in a different way. The key to success is to find the manner and person with whom the student can relate to the best, so that the subject isn't a burden to learn.
