Teaching and Advising Philosophy

My love of biology stems from my appreciation of how science is practiced and the role it plays in our world. I value the scientific method and the importance of objective thinking and reasoning. I want students to develop a curiosity and critical thinking skills, which will help them throughout college and beyond.

In advising, I strive to develop a supportive relationship with students in order to help them discover their own paths, pursue their interests and have a rewarding experience at Quinnipiac.
