EducationPhD in Theoretical Physics.
Master’s degree in Education with a specialization in teaching Mathematics and Science.
Bachelor’s degrees with more than 20 graduate credit hours in both Mathematics and Physics.
ExperienceI have over seven years of experience in teaching college-level classes, both undergraduate and graduate. This includes the design of interdisciplinary classes and summer courses related to mathematics, computational science and brain science.
My aim is to promote mathematical and scientific literacy in my students and overcome any reservations about mathematics and science they might have. This requires a lot more than just lecturing students about “facts” in mathematics and science. Rather it is necessary to teach students how to think in a mathematical and scientific way.
Once mastered, this way of thinking becomes an intellectual “Swiss knife” which benefits students far beyond the specific course.
A prerequisite for acquiring such a mindset is a motivation to learn about mathematics and science. In my experience strong motivation is created in the students when connecting mathematics and science to applications, fun (games, stories, art), or the philosophy of science.
I use all of these strategies along with brain based and individualized approaches.
In addition to being a teacher I am also a seasoned researcher in the fields of computational biology and brain science. In my research I use mathematics and computational approaches to study biological systems. Furthermore I develop advanced data analysis algorithms and implement them in computer programs.
I enjoy working with culturally and linguistically diverse students and many of them continue to contact me for advice or to let me know where they are on their career paths even long after completion of their classes.

HobbiesI like spending time with my family and friends and enjoy swimming, kitesurfing, snowboarding, classical music and reading.
