I am a recent graduate from Stony Brook University with a double Bachelors of Science in Biology and Anthropology. While attending Stony Brook University I specialized in ecology and biological anthropology and was an undergraduate researcher in a population genetics lab. My future goal is to obtain my PhD in human evolutionary biology (particularly population genetics). This coming fall, I will be starting a position as a laboratory assistant at the University of Michigan. My primary teaching experience has been through my undergraduate career, as I was a teacher’s assistant for an upper division biology course. Beyond my teaching assistant role, I was a resident assistant for 2 years. In this position, I guided and mentored many of my peers, be it academically or personally. My specific academic strengths are ecology, evolution, genetics, biological anthropology and archaeology. My interests in these topics were heightened when I had the opportunity to participate in a study abroad program in Kenya. I was able to extensively study and explore the ecological, archaeological and geological uniqueness of the Turkana region of Kenya. On my down time I love spending time outdoors exploring nature and the beautiful world we have. My general approach when tutoring students is to first, determine the student’s strengths and weaknesses and then utilize these strengths and weaknesses to determine the appropriate studying and learning plan. I am passionate and eager to start sharing my knowledge and experiences with my students!
