Teaching

Teaching Philosophy

I am a dedicated teacher that emphasizes critical thinking and inquiry based learning. I focus on making the process of scientific discovery exciting and rewarding as well as emphasizing the practicality and importance of scientific research. I am particularly interested in making science and nature accessible, relevant, and important to those living in urban environments.

Discussion Groups

Everyone enjoys a good paper discussion group! I organize a discussion group at the University of Michigan called the integrative Behavioral Ecology Group Extreme (iBEX). We usually meet every other week in the Fall semester. Check out past topics here.
