Teaching Philosophy

My thesis research involved development of an in vivo system to study regulation of gene expression in yeast.  Following my post-doctoral position, I assumed a faculty position and continued my new area of research involving biological pesticides and their physiological interactions with target pests.  Although I loved research, in 1993, I chose to focus on my passion to teach.

 My teaching experience spans twenty years and the Universities of Wyoming, Montana, and California at Davis.  I began teaching at Emory in the fall of ’98.  My focus here is on microbiology lectures (Biol 370, Biol 470) and laboratory (Biol 370L).  I also love to teach my freshman seminar course (Biol 190) entitled DNA and Forensics.  Very recently I have enjoyed the opportunity to be involved in the Foundations of Modern Biology series (Biol 141/142) as well.  My philosophy in each of my courses is for students to understand concepts and how they fit into the big picture of the biological sciences.
