Personal Statement:
My interest in teaching developed from a love of scientific outreach and mentoring, both in scientific and nonscientific settings. In these roles, I have enjoyed the privilege of playing a small role in helping students, with diverse backgrounds and interests, succeed as they progress through their academic journey. I hope to more formally develop my teaching skills in order to continue to support students at any stage of their academic career reach their goals.
