As Evergreen faculty, my aim is to stimulate logical, creative, and critical thinking in an atmosphere that is both rigorous and respectful. The scientific process is a main theme in my teaching, and I strive to bring it to the foreground of students' worldviews, so that they become comfortable generating hypotheses for the patterns that they observe around them in the world, and are able to live investigated, conscious lives.

Areas of teaching interest and background: Evolutionary biology, animal behavior, tropical ecology (study abroad in Panama & Ecuador), herpetology, vertebrate zoology, field biology, epistemology, philosophy of science, writing, anthropology.
