    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.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
