I strive to help my students develop their curiosity and analytical skills, learn to think critically and independently, and clearly communicate their ideas. As such, in all my courses I aim to create a classroom environment that promotes scientific thinking, encourages students to consider broader applications of the course content, and cultivates students' personal development.
