Teaching & Mentoring

Working with students is one of the most fun and rewarding parts of conducting research. During graduate school, I served as the primary mentor for 12 undergraduate researchers, and for 3 of those students I co-advised their senior honors thesis. I also enjoyed the opportunity while at Brown University to be a graduate teaching assistant for “Coastal Ecology and Conservation,” “Marine Ecology,” and  “Engaged Environmental Scholarship.” I also served as an undergraduate teaching assistant for a Biology lab while at Tufts. Currently in my role as the Director of Harbor Watch, I advise 6 undergraduate students and more than 40 high school students each year. All of these experiences have honed my ability to both engage students in the sciences and explain ecological concepts at varying levels of complexity.
