Biochemistry scientist giving lessons in biochemistry, biology and chemistry online and in-person (Montreal)

Methodology

There are three important aspects to my teaching philosophy –
(a) Ensuring every student is engaged in the classroom activity.
(b) Making students understand the implications of concepts taught in class by connecting them to direct functions in our daily life.
(c) Making science more accessible by furthering the discourse to include seminal research.

Background

I have received my PhD in Medicinal Chemistry from the University of Illinois after which I was a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University. I have experience teaching advanced biochemistry to undergrads.
Currently, I am working as a scientist in a biotech company.
