I am a current PhD candidate in Neuroscience at UCSF. I graduated from Amherst College with a degree in Biology in 2012 and worked from 2012-2014 in a neuroscience lab at Columbia University. While at Amherst I worked as a peer tutor in the physics and biology departments and tutored local high school students in physics, chemistry, and biology. At Columbia, I personally mentored a Columbia undergraduate in neuroscience. The strength and commitment of my science teachers over the years is what has made it possible for me to enter a PhD program in neuroscience and spend my job answering the types of questions I am passionate about. I enjoy using my expertise in the biological sciences to help students become interested in the field if they are able to understand it in a non-intimidating way.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
Science is a thought process more than anything else. I will teach students how to think logically to solve questions rather than relying on pure memorization.
