I have experience as a TA and as an instructor at the University of Connecticut. I thoroughly believe that instructors should be invested in their students learning, and that enthusiasm and hands-on exposure are the best learning tools. The courses I instruct focus on small classrooms and lots of student attention. EEB 3894 is a small seminar course in which we read and discuss the primary scientific literature associated with the Ecology & Evolutionary Biology department's seminar series, while EEB 4272 is a summer field course where we get to learn over 125 local New England plant species!
I am also an instructor for Software Carpentry, a non-profit organization that teaches coding skills to researchers.
