My teaching expertise includes general biology and areas of neuroscience,
and the issues surrounding science and medicine. I particularly like to offer
classes that have a laboratory component, where cadets have the chance to get
hands-on experience with the subject matter. I also like to experiment with new
teaching methods that actively engage students. I have
mentored and trained over 100 undergraduate and graduate students in research
philosophy and practices.
Introductory Biology (BI-101 & 102):
fundamental concepts in biology with emphasis on the human body
Neurobiology (BI-335): the relationship between nervous
system structure and function.
Issues surrounding Science and Medicine (BI-331):
the study of how discoveries in science and medicine impact our ethical, religious,
political, economic, and cultural beliefs.
