Teaching Interests

As an ecology instructor and lab coordinator, I endeavour to inspire interest and excitement about the natural world. Ecology is a complex discipline that encapsulates numerous processes occurring at a variety of scales. This makes for a diverse learning experience, but also provides unique challenges for undergraduate students to navigate. Accordingly, I cultivate an upbeat and open-minded environment in the classroom, where learning can happen collaboratively. I also emphasize the importance of building critical thinking and analytical skills, within and beyond the classroom.
