I am passionate about communicating about science, the environment, and the human elements of these topics. By sharing knowledge and discussing values among diverse peoples, we take steps towards building a more sustainable and equitable world.
One way that I do this is by teaching biological knowledge and scientific practice. I have co-taught or assisted in teaching several undergraduate and graduate level courses at academic institutions in Finland, Panama, and the United States. These courses range from introductory biology for non-science majors, to intermediate courses in ecology and evolutionary biology, to advanced special topics courses and intensive research experience courses.
