Introductory courses

General biology

Advanced courses

I teach a Microbial Genomics class in the Spring and a Genomics and Bioinformatics class in the Fall. Both these classes have juniors and seniors.

Research

Research question, hypotheses

I am interested in testing whether Course-Based Undergraduate Research Experiences (CUREs) enhance student interest in research and hypothesis generation.

I would like to flip some modules of my class so that students can do more in class. I would like to move some of the lecture part out of the class.

Research type

How students improve or increase their skills OR decrease unwanted behaviors based on a learning experience (performance, behaviors, actions), How students change their feelings about abilities or intentions to continue in science based on a learning experience (efficacy, interest, motivation)

Impact of Research

Overall Experience
