TEACHING & LECTURING
Since 2014, I have have co-taught second-year genetics (Biology 2581B) with Susanne Kohalmi. This is one of the largest courses on campus (~1100 students) and part of the core biology curriculum.
I also teach a fourth-year undergraduate/graduate course on genome evolution (Biology 4200B/9561B).
I regularly give guest undergraduate/graduate lectures on science writing and communication. Please contact me for details and for organizing potential speaking engagements.
