My main teaching experience has been at City College of San Francisco, where I was on the faculty from 2001 through Spring 2016. I have primarily taught Introduction to Microbiology (for pre-Allied Health students), Human Biology, Genetics, and Bioethics. Prior to 2005, I also taught various Biology courses at Laney College, Cañada College, and San Francisco State University. I have also had the privilege of working as a visiting fellow with the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues during the Spring of 2015. At the Commission, I initiated the development of educational materials that integrate ethical issues into basic biology courses.
