M.A., Molecular & Cell Biology, U.C. Berkeley.

B.A., Biology and Science in Society, Wesleyan University.

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.
