I am a biologist and a biology educator.
As a biologist, I have a passion for understanding how organisms manage to survive extreme environments. I am currently investigating the mechanisms underlying insect freeze tolerance as a Ph.D. candidate in Dr. Brent Sinclair’s lab at Western University (London ON, Canada). You can read more on my Research page.
As a biology educator, I value and promote the use of evidence-based teaching methods in post-secondary science classrooms. I currently work for the Teaching Support Centre at Western University, training teaching assistants to be effective educators. I also research how university students structure their understanding of animal physiology. You can read more on my Teaching page.
