I recently completed by Masters degree in Biology from UNCC where I worked in a Marine Biology Research Lab. I examined the potential toxicity of metal nanoparticles to sea urchin and oyster embryos and larvae. I have also spent time studying honey bee behavior. Towards the end of my undergraduate career, I worked as a tutor at UNCC assisting students in the Introductory Biology courses for both majors and non-majors. As a graduate student in the Biology department at UNCC, I have taught the General Biology for Majors lab courses for two years. I also had an active role in the lecture component of these courses. I really enjoy helping alleviate the stress associated with a science class so that students can begin to appreciate just how cool this information can be.
