Teaching is never the same day twice. I work with students to improve their skills and prepare them for life beyond high school. As head of the lab, I focus my lesson plans on three areas of neuroscience: behavioral, computational, and fundamentals. I spend a lot of time designing projects and experiments for my students that will help them learn these aspects of neuroscience.
