I am an Assistant Adjunct Professor in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology and the Director of the Microbiology Teaching Laboratory in the School of Medicine. Prior to arriving at UCSF, I was a Research Associate in bacterial pathogenesis at Stanford University, Visiting Professor at Swarthmore College, and Program Director of Sciences and Technology and Instructor at Berkeley Extension. I currently teach and direct courses in the microbiology curriculum in the Schools of Medicine, Dentistry, and Pharmacy.
I am passionate about teaching microbiology, and am excited by the opportunity to work with aspiring healthcare professionals. Microbiology is a field where biochemistry, genetics, immunology, and cell biology intersect, so there are clear connections to information that students have learned about and are interested in, which will facilitate learning microbiology. I am interested in helping students make connections between “information” and application of knowledge and like to find ways to actively engage them in this process. To this end, I have developed interactive iBook Microbiology Lab Manuals tailored to our Medical and Dental School courses. These iBooks incorporate external web links to “dive deeper”, color images, embedded self-assessments, and instructional videos to facilitate integration and application of information. I’ve also developed several short case-based videos for the pharmacy curriculum that students view prior to lecture to help them frame how the information they will hear fits into a clinical context. My goal with all these learning resources is to provide a compelling framework for my learners to anchor the clinical microbiology content and connect it with their burgeoning clinical knowledge.
