    EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY
  My goal as a teacher is to inspire students to want to learn more about biological processes and evolution. This can be accomplished by enabling students to understand biological systems and major biological concepts and their relevance to daily life. Presenting students with information alone is not enough, and I strive to pique the students' interest through engaging anecdotes, videos and real life research relating to the subject matter discussed. When possible, I show examples of what we are discussing as this makes the material more memorable for the students.
 
     
    CURRENT PROJECTS
  I obtained a Research Opportunity Award (ROA) from NSF to investigate the effects of hypoxia on genome wide genetic variation in the teleost fish Fundulus heteroclitus.
     
    INTERESTS
  I am interested in a broad array of topics from bioinformatics and genomics to physiology and evolution. Presently I have two saltwater tanks at home with corals, fish and multiple other types of invertebrates. I currently have an affectionate dog and cat at home as well. I have in the past raised a variety of insects as pets and for use in movies and classroom displays, including leaf insects, stick insects, cave cockroaches, hissing cockroaches, praying mantis’, and a variety of Dipteran flies.
