Teaching

Lecturer, School of the Art Institute of Chicago

In August 2019 I began teaching at SAIC. My course is titled Light & Vision. The course explores the physics of light, how visual systems allow animals to navigate the world using light, and the neuroscience of perception. Two topics of special focus are color and evolution. We also consider the history and philosophy of science, and how artists have experimented with light and perception in their work.

Teaching Assistant, The University of Chicago

In the fall of 2018 I was a teaching assistant for the Fundamentals of Neuroscience course in the College at UChicago. We covered a lot of ground, spanning evolutionary, developmental, systems, and social neuroscience, and we dissected a fair number of brains!

I am pursuing a College Teaching Certificate through the Chicago Center for Teaching.
