I prioritize creating an environment of mutual respect and collaboration. I aim for students to describe patterns verbally, graphically, and mathematically, apply logic to propose mechanisms, and draw on knowledge from multiple disciplines to suggest solutions to problems.

I try especially to foster appreciation for: natural history, the inevitable failures that come with the scientific process, and the importance of a diversity of participants.
