Teaching

As Associate Professor for Neurophysiology at Illinois State University, I teach courses related to Neuroscience and Physiology.

  • In Fall, I typically teach BSC 283 Animal Physiology. About 60 students take this undergraduate course, which comes with 4 lab sections (15 students each). I lecture MWF from 3 - 4 pm. The corresponding lab sections are Tuesdays and Thursday from 1-4 and 6 - 9 pm. In Fall 2015 I co-taught this course with my colleague Dr. Paul Garris.
  • In Fall 2015 Dr. Garris and I also co-taught 430 Neuroscience. This graduate course has 8-10 students and explores current findings in Neuroscience. Lectures were Thursday 1-3pm and Friday 1-2pm. This course is also offered in Fall 2017.
  • Since 2016, I am also co-teaching a mixed graduate/undergraduate Biophysics course with Dr. Epa Rosa (Physics).
  • In Spring I teach graduate courses, or another section of Animal Physiology:
    2013: BSC 450 Principles of Neurophysiology (5-10 students)
    2014: BSC 450 Neuroethology (5-10 students)
    2015: BSC 343 Introduction to Neurobiology (60 students).
    2016: BSC 450 Neurons, Synapses and Circuits (5-10 students)
    2017: BSC 283 Animal Physiology
  • In addition, I typically co-teach a seminar in Neurobiology with my Neuroscience colleagues at ISU.
  • Undergraduate students can get research credit for working in my lab (BSC 290). 
  • In summer, I teach at the Neural Systems and Behavior Course at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA. This is an 8 week summer course for advanced PhD students and postdocs. If you are interested in taking the course, go to their website. The directors will be happy to help you!
