I work as a graduate teaching assistant for introductory biology courses (LB 144, LB 145). Outside of teaching, I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Entomology studying moths as pollinators in urban environments. I am also participating in the Scholarship of Undergraduate Teaching and Learning (SUTL) program housed in LBC this school year. Generally, I am passionate about conservation, sharing science with the public, and creating inclusive and productive learning environments inside and outside of the classroom.
