I earned my undergraduate degree in biochemistry at Brown University and my Ph.D. in immunology at the University of California, Berkeley. I have been teaching both introductory and advanced biology courses at the University of Maryland, College Park for over 10 years. For fun I enjoy reading science fiction, doing crossword puzzles, swing and ballroom dancing, and playing ultimate frisbee.

What is your teaching philosophy?
I try to bring a broad perspective to my teaching. If one approach doesn't click, then another might. I also try to make personal connections between my students and the material.
