Research Interests

Scientific writing for undergraduate students

Scientific writing is an essential tool for our students, both for reaching a deeper understading of the material they learn while in college, and for their future professional career . Creating as many opportunities as possible for them to practice in a context where they receive good suport and feedback is a challenge when having big enrollment classes. How can we overcome this challenge?

How do we learn Biology? Can we use this knowledge to improve our students success?
