About Me

My mission is to inspire and foster community-based learners motivated by discovery and valued for their skills in critical thinking and creativity. I've been teaching for 15 years and have led the development of numerous science communication tools and educational games which have garnered international recognition with awards from the National Science Foundation, Journal of Science and a United Nation's World Summit Award. I got my PhD. in molecular genetics and biotechnology from the University of Guelph and have been involved extensively in both public and private scientific education programs, consults and designs for a number of textbooks and major interactive educational exhibits, and volunteers extensively in helping promote science education and science careers to high school students. My mission is to inspire community-based learners motivated by discovery and valued for their skills in critical thinking and creativity.
