I am currently completing graduate coursework at the University of Oxford towards a MSc in Radiation Biology. Upon completion of the MSc, I will be returning to Columbia University to complete my PhD in Cellular and Molecular Biology. I completed a BS in Biology and Anthropology at the City College of New York.

Currently, I work at SUNY Downstate Medical Center, where I have been for the past 8 years as a Laboratory Manager and am now enrolled as a PhD candidate. I have held an appointment as an Instructional Support Technician at SUNY Downstate in the Division of Radiobiology. As a result, I have extensive experience in the sciences, particularly biotechnology and molecular biology. In addition to managing and designing high level research projects, I am also responsible for training and teaching advanced biology courses to fellows, residents, and medical students, as well as volunteer undergraduate and high school students in the Division of Radiobiology.

I have more than 3 years of private and classroom based tutoring experience working with students of all ages, especially high school and undergraduate students. I am an extremely patient tutor and care about the students understanding the concepts presented to them. Over the years of teaching graduate level material and tutoring students, I have come to love teaching and imparting knowledge to others. My style of teaching is very interactive, visual, and hands on. I stay away from drilling memorization and focus more on concepts based learning as well as ensuring the lessons stay with the students beyond the exams.

As a researcher, I have 8 years of experience in advanced biology and chemistry. My research involves high level organic/biochemistry, as well as complex biotechnology and molecular biology. As a result, in addition to having formal academic training in biology through my undergraduate classes, I have extensive real-world, hands-on biology and chemistry training and expertise. Thus, I offer my students a unique opportunity to learn science from an outside of the classroom perspective.
