I am currently a PhD student in Biochemistry at the University at Buffalo. Prior to graduate school, I obtained a Bachalor???s degree in Biological Sciences (Neuroscience concentration) and Psychology. Both of these fields have made me passionate about education and learning. Throughout my academic career, I have mentored many students in research labs and have lectured on a variety of topics from the undergraduate to graduate level. The opportunity to have this breadth of experiences from individualized to classroom-sized groups has given me an understanding of what are the unique challenges when teaching a student at the individual level.

I currently perform primary research in the field of neuroscience to understand molecular mechanisms underlying long term memory formation in the brain. Thus, I am aware of the complexities of learning from the level of the neuron to the individual and I bring this perspective and sensitivity when I engage with any new student. Teaching is an education process of sorts for the teacher as well, as I learn to adapt and present concepts to the student in a tailored way so as to meet the student???s goals and optimize their ability to not only memorize information, but develop a deeper appreciation for the underlying processes which it describes.

In my spare time when I???m not tutoring or in lab, I enjoy playing piano, reading classic literature, and nature walks.
