"I am a second-year Ph.D. student with the City University of New York Graduate Center in the Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology department. My current research project looks at exploring the renin-angiotensin system local to the brain and how it connects COVID-19 and neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's. I graduated in 2020 with a Bachelor's of Science in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology from the University of Washington - Seattle where I worked in a chemical engineering lab for two and half years researching how to engineer CRISPR-activation into bacterial pathways.

During my undergraduate education, I took a range of biology and chemistry courses including biochemistry, chemistry, genetics, bioinformatics, genomic informatics, and ecology. For Foundations in Molecular and Cellular Biology and Comparative Vertebrate Biology, I assisted the professor and TAs by working as a peer facilitator where I answered student questions and gave short presentations that exemplify important points from the main lecture.

Over the past three years, I have worked for the UW ALVA GenOM Summer Undergraduate Research Project where I instructed ~15 incoming freshmen students on science communication including how to read scientific publications as well as how to craft scientific papers, posters, and presentations. Last year, I taught the calculus course as well.

My previous teaching experience has primarily been with freshmen and sophomore undergraduates but I am open to tutoring high school and undergraduate upperclassmen. My strong suit is biology and related science but I can assist with math, chemistry, and science-related communication as well. My tutoring style favors facilitated problem-solving to strengthen reasoning and independence which becomes more and more important as one progresses in school. My favorite part about teaching and tutoring is watching my students become more confident in their abilities to approach problems that were previously intimidating." less...
