I also teach Molecular and Microbial Biology course. This unique course provides an opportunity for students to experience the scientific inquiry process in a comprehensive and creative way. This course was developed in collaboration with the Yale Center for Scientific Teaching and the Small World Initiative, Crowdsourcing Antibiotic Discovery. The course is designed to use authentic scientific research to inspire undergraduates. This initiative focuses on addressing a worldwide health threat- the diminishing supply of effective antibiotics. All students present their data at the UWA Undergraduate Research Symposium.
I also taught Principles of Biology for freshmen student. Zoology, and Anatomy and Physiology laboratory sections.
I teach upper level Cell Biology and Genetics courses (lecture and laboratory). The small class sizes at the University allows me to offer the laboratory sections as discovery-based research courses. These discovery-based labs provide students with hands-on independent research project experience. My lab sections focuses on student-centered learning where students design, perform, and analyze data for their own experiments. The lab sections provide students with profound lab experience, scientific writing, critical thinking, and presentation skills. In addition, I teach graduate level classes such as Functional Genomics and Plant-Fungal Interaction.
