I view teaching as a reciprocal process that provides students with a personal sense of fulfillment and also advances science. Whether mentoring a student or teaching a lecture, I have a single guiding philosophy: teaching is a pursuit for the improvement of your life and the lives of the people around you. These improvements can be a scientific advancement or shift in one’s worldview. With a dose of healthy skepticism and critical thinking, I believe this philosophy is the road to improving science and living more fulfilling life.
