I value sharing knowledge as much as creating it. I think one of the most important roles of a teacher is to trigger curiosity and to lead students to wonder about the natural world.
As a graduate student at Stanford, I was a co-instructor for Developmental Biology in the Ocean (BIOS236) and a teaching assistant for Developmental Biology (BIO160A) and Core Molecular Biology Lab (BIO44X). I gave invited lectures at Hopkins Marine Station and at California State University Monterey Bay, and led hands-on classes for undergraduates and high school students. Additionally, I am mentoring a high school student who participates in my research on hemichordate development and metamorphosis.
At University of Montreal, I was a teaching assistant for Invertebrate Zoology (BIO2431), Biodiversity I – Invertebrates (BIO1335), Biodiversity II – Vertebrates (BIO1445) and Cell Biology (BIO1157).
