Many of my current teaching responsibilities consist of mentoring students
in laboratory research projects. However, I also taught
BIOL 485 and an
Upward Bound course in the summer of 2013.
From 2003 to 2006, I helped teach "Biological
Frameworks For Engineers," a problem-based learning course that
encourages engineering students to apply their problem-solving
skills to various biological systems. The course was offered
to chemical engineering students in the fall (ChemE 355/599),
students in the winter (EE 400/546), and mechanical engineering students in the spring
(ME 498/598). Aside from leading some of the lectures and labs, I supervised the integration of
Teranode software and journal club sessions into these courses.
In 2004 and 2005, I also taught
"Musical Representations of Science and Mathematics," a three-day summer
mini-course for high school
students in the University of Washington's GEAR UP program.
My course allowed students
to create short songs with lyrics about a scientific or mathematical topic of their choosing.
I spent the 2002-03 academic year at the University of Puget Sound, where I taught
and Comparative Animal Physiology.
