These courses include ecology, genetics, evolution, anatomy, and conservation, among others. His teaching experiences include discussions, labs, and lectures at the introductory, core, and advanced levels.

His hobbies include painting (acrylics and watercolors), growing tropical plants, and French language and culture.
Kathryn Trenshaw (email@example.com) is a PhD student in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (ChBE). As an undergradate student, she TA'd an introductory chemistry course for non-majors as well as tutored students in chemistry and physics and fell in love with teaching others as a result. As a graduate student, she continues to TA courses in ChBE and tutor ChBE students. Her Master's thesis focused on synthetic transcription factors and using them to control gene expression. Her PhD thesis will focus on a variety of topics in engineering education, including integrating design throughout the ChBE curriculum, increasing intrinsic motivation in the engineering classroom, and improving the climate in engineering for LGBT students. In her free time, she enjoys playing all kinds of video games, working out using the P90X program, learning to play the piano, and cooking delicious food.
