Science is a process, and the best way to understand a process is to go through it. So, to learn science, do science, and to teach science, do science! Embracing this philosophy, my courses are grounded in active, experiential learning.
Advanced Biological Oceanography - Benthic Processes
(MARN 6011, Co-taught with Prof. Evan Ward)
This course covers classic and contemporary concepts in benthic marine ecology through active discussion of key papers from the primary literature. Papers and discussions emphasize benthic processes, the patterns they generate, and underlying mechanisms. Next offering: Fall 2019
Experimental Design in Marine Ecology
This course introduces students to a variety of experimental designs and their corresponding analyses with a focus on effectively applying these methods in marine biology and ecology. Using R, students learn to organize, analyze, and visualize data. Assignments emphasize interpretation and verbal communication of experimental methods and results. Next offering: Spring 2019
