Teaching and scholarship

teaching icon
My aim as a teacher is to present information in a way that sparks the students’ interest and encourages them to engage with the material in their own time. In addition, I aim to create friendly and welcoming learning environments that allow the students to feel relaxed and comfortable to ask questions..

lectures icon
My current teaching mainly focusses on molecular genetics, human physiology and reproduction, and lab skills. I use a variety of teaching formats, including lectures, workshops and practicals.

tutorials icon
In my Stage 1 tutorials, we discuss how genetic mutations can cause disease, and how the fruit fly Drosophila can be used as a model organism to study gene function. For Stage 2, I offer tutorials in the areas of genetic manipulation of animals and methods to detect gene expression, and the students are involved in deciding which aspects of these areas we explore in detail.
