TEACHING AND BROADER IMPACTS
I have developed a question-based teaching style to facilitate student learning. I have been a teaching assistant for various introductory biology courses, such as Ecology, Evolution, and Diversity, Introduction to Zoology, and Concepts of Biology at the University of Oklahoma. I have been invited to give guest lectures at the University of Oklahoma, Francis Marion University, and the University of Potsdam.
