Academic Work Experience:
Graduate:
FIU Teaching Assistantship in Biology from August 2011-present
Taught Introductory Biology labs and assisted in developing curricula. Specific
tasks include proctoring lecture exams, leading group based learning exercise in
biology and developing/grading assignments, quizzes and exams.
GVSU Research Assistantship in Arctic Ecology from May 2008-August 2011
Supervised a team of researchers and participated in data collection and site
maintenance at field sites in Barrow and Atqasuk, Alaska. Tasks in Alaska
included taking field measurements, managing logistics, and purchasing
equipment. Tasks in Michigan included managing data analysis, lab oversight,
and development of outreach programs.
Undergraduate:
GVSU Research Assistant in Arctic Ecology from March 2007-May 2008
Collected field data at Barrow and Atqasuk, Alaska and wrote up results for
presentations at conferences. Tasks included taking field measurements such as
growth measurements, phenological observations, and point framing.
GVSU Research Assistant in Plant Biology from March 2005-December 2006
Assisted experimental design of bacterial laboratory experiments, performed
laboratory experiments, and assisted in data analysis. Tasks included gathering
plant tissue samples, preparing agar dishes, running multi-day experiments, data
analysis, and presentations.
