I enjoy the challenge of making detailed scientific results easy to understand for those that may not be classically trained as a scientist. At the Friedman school I have had the opportunity to work as a teaching assistant for graduate level courses. In this role I am constantly learning new ways to communicate science to students through lectures and discussions. Below are the courses I have assisted with at the Friedman school. For a complete list of my teaching experience please see my CV.

SPRING 2012 & 2013:

Nutrition in the Lifecycle 
Professor: Dr. Jennifer Truong
This course covers nutrition issues from preconception throughout life, with a particular emphasis on nutrition correlates of normal growth and development and on the consequences of under and over nutrition.
