I love to teach through hands-on and experiential learning. I particularly enjoy challenging students to think critically, and to become skilled statistical analysts and writers.
Courses I teach
Biology 310, Biodiversity and Ecosystems. We use a mix of lecture, discussion, and a tid-bit of field work to learn about quantifying biodiversity, community assembly, and ecosystem function.
Biology 215, Introduction to Ecology and Evolution. In this course I teach a section focussed on fundamental concepts in Ecology, and we touch modern questions and approaches within Ecology.
Courses I am developing
Biology 4xx, Climate Change Ecology. In this course we will cover the problem of prediction in ecology through the lends of climate change. This involves understanding general physiological responses to climate drivers, methods of scaling to the population and community levels, and incorporation of phenotypic plasticity and evolutionary adaptation.
Courses I have taught previously
Invertebrate Biology, 300-level Undergraduate course, Department of Biological Sciences, Simon Fraser University.
Marine Evolution Under Climate Change, Graduate course, Centre for Marine Evolutionary Biology, University of Gothenburg, Sweden.
