An accomplished research scientist with 10+ years' experience in biomedical research and development alongside teaching to Master's level.

Methodology

My teaching method is adaptive to the students need. It would be interactive that would engage the students throughout the whole process.

Background

I am a highly observant and analytical thinker who enjoys strategic planning and solving a complex problem. My innate curiosity and love of helping people led me to a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis. I also have excellent leadership and mentoring experience as demonstrated by being the founding member of student chapters and two years of volunteer work in teaching master students.
