Professional Statement

I have diverse research experience both in the laboratory and the field, which I incorporate into my teaching material. I believe that one of the most effective methods of encouraging enthusiasm for science is through real world examples. By sharing my own experiences, I also strive to foster a personal connection with the students. Working at Husson allows me the opportunity to work with students one-on-one, which is the most effective way for me to share my passion for science.
