I have a PhD in microbial genetics and have worked in academic research as a university professor and for commercial companies in the biotechnology manufacturing sector. I have a broad background in science and math, a love of written and oral communication and a strong desire to share the knowledge I have accumulated in a varied career.

As a teacher I like to emphasize how knowledge is gained and believe strongly in "learning by doing".
