Instructor of Biology

Ph.D. Molecular and Cell Biology, University of California, Berkeley

B.S. Biology & Biochemistry, University of Michigan – Flint 

I find living organisms amazing, and am interested in many different areas of biology. I love understanding how life works on the molecular level. I have done research in several different areas of biology, including protein structure and function, meiotic cell division, genetic recombination, gene regulation, and genome evolution. I am particularly interested in understanding how information is encoded in the genome, and how genomes change through evolution. 

My courses include Biological Principles, Biodiversity, and Life Science lab, as well as upper-level special topics courses.

I am originally from Michigan, but have lived in different places since. I enjoy travelling, and spent a year backpacking through Central America after graduating with my bachelor’s degree. I then moved to Northern California for graduate school. After that I moved to Cambridge, UK for my postdoctoral research, where I got to explore many different places in Europe. I am now very happy to be living in Florida with lots of sun, beaches, and interesting wildlife.
