I am a postdoctoral fellow in molecular biology interested in teaching undergraduates. Currently I am an IRACDA Fellow at Stanford University and San Jose State University. At Stanford I study plant-pathogen interaction with Professor Mary Beth Mudgett in a system ideal for undergraduate education. At SJSU I trained in pedagogy and have served as a co-instructor for Bacterial Genetics and General Microbiology courses under the mentorship of Professor Elizabeth Skovran.
