"I earned a B.S. in chemistry (minor in mathematics) from the University of Florida and then graduated from the University of Michigan with a Masters and Ph.D. in biological chemistry. My postdoctoral research at the University of Maryland focused on the biochemical mechanism of a bacterial transcriptional activator. After more than 10 years of laboratory research, my projects have spanned topics ranging from organic synthesis to biochemistry, microbiology, and bacterial genetics in order to answer questions of biological interest.

I have several years of experience mentoring technicians, undergraduates, and graduate students in the laboratory. I have subsequently spent more than 5 years teaching a laboratory course on cellular & molecular biology and genetics to biology majors at Eastern Michigan University. This intense class involved teaching scientific concepts in combination with laboratory techniques, scientific writing skills, and lab calculations, for which I received excellent evaluations.

The one-on-one time spent working with students was the part of classroom teaching that I enjoyed most. It was particularly gratifying to have students come into my office completely confused about a concept and have them leave with a much better understanding of things where it “all makes sense now”.

I’m excited to have to opportunity to work with students individually through tutoring and I’d encourage anyone with questions to contact me to learn more about whether I may be able help and schedule a time to work together." less...
