(3) Teaching

Teaching is one of my passions. And I have always found that I get some of my best ideas when I am teaching, both in the classroom and with undergraduate students who work with me in the lab. My goal with every class is to pass on skills so that my students can critically evaluate results in the literature, to work independently and in teams, and to learn the process of science by doing their own experiments and working out issues as they arise.

I have served as a Graduate Teaching Assistant at the University of Illinois for:

– Limnology – Senior/Graduate Level – Fall 2011 and 2013

– Anatomy and Physiology – Sophomore Level – Spring 2013, 2015, and 2016

– Environmental Biology – Freshman Level – Spring 2012, Fall 2015, Fall 2016


– I have also had the opportunity to mentor undergraduate students who worked with me and collected data for projects in the Cáceres Lab.

While at Lawrence University, I served as an Undergraduate Laboratory Assistant for:

– Aquatic Ecology – Junior Level – Fall 2009 and 2010


– General Ecology – Sophomore Level – Spring 2011

– Integrative Principles of Biology – Freshman Level – Winter 2009, 2010, and 2011

– Terrestrial Field Ecology – Junior Level – Spring 2009
