I consider teaching essential to develop and maintain a healthy and collaborative community. Over the years, I have lectured, supervised and mentored students at all levels in higher education, covering a range of topics and institutions.
As a lecturer, I encourage students to reflect on observation as a cornerstone of biology. I like to see them amazed by a well-planned experiment proving their own hypothesis wrong. This is where grasping the process of science really begins.
As a supervisor, I focus on two concepts that matter greatly to me: maximum freedom when it comes to the decision on how to answer a question, and no freedom at all when it comes to the decision whether the answer holds true.
As a mentor, I try my best to extend my scientific integrity to everyday university life.
