I recently finished my Ph.D. at the University of Iowa Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, where I also did my Master's degree, with a specialization is Vertebrate Paleontology. My personal area of specialization is sloths, both modern and extinct, but I have also worked with ungulates (hoofed animals) and dinosaurs.
I did my undergraduate work at the University of California-Davis with a major in Geology and a minor in Japanese, which included a one year study abroad program at Tohoku University in Sendai, Japan.
My main subjects that I tutor are Earth Science and Anatomy. An understanding of basic Earth and Environmental Science is more important today than ever, with climate change looming on all of us, and my background in Paleontology allows me to put anatomy in an evolutionary context and explain not just what a particular feature is and what it does, but why we have it and why it is the way it is.
My hobbies include practicing a martial art called Aikido, as well as other aspects of Japanese culture, including video games and anime.
