I have taught as a demonstrator, supervisor and guest lecturer at The University of Sydney and Western Sydney University. I have been involved in marking assignments and exams, as well as course development practicals.
Animals and Us
This is a first-year unit aimed at understanding the complex relationship between humans and animals from cultural, economical and ecological perspectives. I taught this unit at a supervisory capacity and have been involved in course development and wrote and presented 2 guest lectures for this unit. One was on entomophagy, the other on how popular culture can influence peoples’ perceptions of invertebrates.
From Molecules to Ecosystems, The University of Sydney (2019-2021)
This is a first-year unit aimed at teaching students a range of skills from molecular biology to ecology. I taught this unit as a demonstrator and have marked exams and assessments.
Human Biology, The University of Sydney (2017-2021)
This course is a first-year unit and teaches a broad range of human biological concepts including physiology, anatomy, medical science and histology. Students undertake a range of experiments and dissections. I taught this unit as a demonstrator and have marked exams and assessments.
