I am currently a Doctoral student in the Program in Biomedical Sciences and Engineering with an emphasis in Molecular, Cell, and Developmental biology. Past education includes a Physiological Science (M.S.) and Neuroscience (B.S.). At UCLA, during my Master's program in Integrative Biology and Physiology, I had opportunities to teach each quarter and fell in love with teaching. Expanding my skills into the teaching realm, I was able to utilize my experience in the laboratory to help students understand science. I found myself not only being able to teach well but I spent a lot of time aiding students to develop as scientists. Each year that I taught I was commended on my teaching style and ability to edify students, receiving distinguished teaching awards two years in a row.

At UCLA I have had the opportunity to not only be a teaching assistant (some classes: "Cell and systems biology", "Nervous tissue and muscle physiology", "Mechanisms and therapies of disease") but I also had an opportunity to develop my own course and teach the current practices of bio-engineering. My love of teaching biology has allowed me to help students understand complex biological problems and understand the foundations of physiology. The majority of my teaching is through conversations. I try to engage students in dialogue surrounding the topic at hand to first assess their level of understanding and then to edify from their current level of understanding.
