Lecturer, School of the Art Institute of Chicago
From August 2019 to June 2020 I was a lecturer at SAIC. My course was titled Light & Vision. The course explored the physics of light and how visual systems allow animals to navigate the world using light. Two topics of special focus were color and evolution. We also considered the history and philosophy of science, how artists have experimented with light and perception in their work, and machine vision and AI-driven visual art today.
Teaching Assistant, The University of Chicago
Between 2018 and 2021 I have been a TA for the Fundamentals of Neuroscience course and the Systems Neuroscience course in the College at UChicago. I facilitated student-instructor relations and led weekly discussion sections and hands-on labs. The courses covered extensive ground, spanning evolutionary, developmental, systems, computational, and social neuroscience, and we dissected a fair number of brains!
