Areas of interest: genetics, cell/molecular biology, science communication and community engagement
I hold a bachelors degree in biology (Carleton College), a Ph.D. in Genetics (Indiana University), and Editor in the Life Sciences (ELS) certification. Although my scientific background and is in areas related to fungal genetics, meiosis, and DNA repair, I enjoy teaching and learning about many areas of biology as well as interdisciplinary topics.
Recent courses taught include:
• Natural World: Biology and Society (NW 200-BI)
• Introductory Cell Biology (BI 105)
• Fundamentals of Genetics (BI 210)
• Fundamentals of Cell and Molecular Biology (BI 220)
• Biology Indianapolis Outreach (BI 270)
• Biology Capstone: Circadian Rhythms (BI 480)
Outside of class, my current professional pursuits include scientific communication and STEM community outreach initiatives. I also write a science blog at Mulled Science.
