Research Interests

In research, I studied the embryonic development of the central nervous system and its regulation by protein degradation.

As an academic coordinator, I support the MCB laboratory courses, MCB 120L, MCB 140L and MCB 160L. As a lecturer for MCB 120L, my main teaching strategy is active learning through critical thinking. I promote group work, discussions, and ask guiding questions to help students reach the answer on their own. My goal is for students to learn to critically analyze their data and experience how much fun research and experiments can be.
