My goal is to enhance the undergraduate training of bioengineers by developing and implementing effective teaching strategies, creating opportunities for undergraduates to use their skills for the benefit of society, and recruitment/retention of a diverse undergraduate population.
Developing undergraduate labs involving molecular biology and genetic/tissue engineering
K-12 outreach/education opportunities for undergraduates
Recruitment and retention of a diverse population of undergraduates in science and engineering disciplines
Senior capstone design projects
Honors program
Service learning and student leadership
