ProfileI have always been interested in the intersection of biology and chemistry. I received my PhD in Bioorganic Chemistry and have research experience in protein biochemistry, cell biology as well as small-molecule organic synthesis. I currently share my fascination for biochemistry, in particular, and science, in general, by teaching.
I teach introductory biochemistry, a biochemistry laboratory course, and electives that focus on disease mechanisms at the molecular level. I strive to have an engaging and challenging classroom experience for my students. During 2013-2014 I have participated in the Davis Teaching Fellows group, which has provided me with new perspectives and strategies for teaching.
