I want to help my students dismantle systems of oppression and help to redesign a more just society.


How do you do that?

The love of my kids. I'm not in it for the income. I'm in it for the outcome.


I stay in it, after 22 years, for several reasons. I am task driven, enjoy a sense of accomplishment, and stay motivated by a personal need to do the best I can every day. It is a personality thing, I guess.


Relationships with students and colleagues, and to do what I can to increase scientific literacy in general. I tell my students that I don't really care if they remember the stages of cellular respiration in 10 years, but I want them to understand enough about biology to know what posts on Instagram and Facebook are straight up pseudoscience.



I’d like to think so
