I am currently a visiting assistant professor at Willamette University in Salem, OR and an adjunct instructor for one course at Portland State University in Portland, OR. Prior to these positions, I was a postdoctoral trainee at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland. I earned my PhD at the University of Florida in Gainesville.
I am seeking a tenure-track position in which I can teach students both in the classroom and in the lab. I believe deeply in the value of an education that integrates the arts and sciences to prepare students for their roles as lifelong learners and community members. I enjoy working with students who are curious about their world and excited about improving it. I value a community of educators and learners who represent diversity in all its forms, and I intentionally seek out ways to incorporate diversity into my teaching. At Willamette, I have enjoyed getting to know my students on a personal level. Seeing their progression over the course of only a short time has been so fascinating, and I know that being in a position with more continuity will make this even more satisfying.
