My recent, current, and upcoming classroom teaching at UW includes BIOL 220, BIOL 485, ENGL 299, and an Upward Bound course.

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), electrical engineering 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 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 Cell Biology (Biology 212) and Comparative Animal Physiology (Biology 334).
