My goals when teaching are to inspire future biologists, help them develop their critical thinking skills, and help them acquire the tools essential to their success beyond university. As a professor at Boston University, I have received the Dean’s Award for Excellence in Graduate Education and been nominated for the Metcalf Award for Excellence in Teaching. Several graduate students from the lab have also received Outstanding Teaching Awards. As a lab, we place a strong emphasis on teaching and we consider it to be an excellent complement to our research programs.
