The central theme of my teaching philosophy has been one of “engagement”.
Learning is accomplished best when one is actively participating in the lesson and
material. My aim is to teach scientific concepts in an engaging manner that captivates my students. My lectures are designed to encourage students to ponder these concepts outside of my classroom. When possible, I try to use new technology and pedagogy to enhance my class. As a scientist, I try to incorporate my own research into lectures to expose my students to real world applications of their course material. Prior to joining the Biology Department faculty, I held a position at Emory University as Fellowships in Research and Science Training (FIRST) postdoctoral fellow. During my postdoc, I split time between research at the Winship Cancer Center and teaching at the Atlanta University Center (AUC). My primary research focus is protein localization and trafficking. My graduate work focused on the trafficking of telomerase components in cancer cells. Here at Emory, I have worked with Paula Vertino to understand the consequences of epigenetic silencing on primary ciliogenesis. I am currently shifting my research interests toward pedagogy. More specifically, I’m interested in the application of active learning in science education.
