Course Description:

Sports and the Science that Fuels It
We love sports, but how often do we stop and think about the science behind a perfectly aimed ball, the limits of speed, and how our bodies move? In this exciting and interactive course, we will explore the fundamentals of scientific processes within our bodies, between ourselves and other objects, and will even investigate the scientific basis behind performance enhancing products. This class includes a range of reading assignments and a research project that spans the semester. Come on and let's play!

Research Interests

I do research in the cloud forests of the Ecuadorian Andes and there I name new species of wasps, investigate parasitoid communities, and study the vertical stratification of arthropods. I love what I do! Not only do I get to play in the mud as my job, but I also get to teach science. I seriously have the best job ever.

Interests and hobbies

I like doing yoga, running, watching sports, fishing, baking, various crafty projects, and spending as much time as possible outdoors.
