Ph.D. (Chemical Engineering) scholar with a background in Biotechnology gives biotechnology and microbiology classes for high school and grad students in Halifax, Nova Scotia

Methodology

I prefer powerpoint presentations during my classes since these are way more convenient for both the teacher and students for better understanding. I also opt for bi-weekly assignments and exams. The classes are meant for high school and grad students.

Background

I am a Research Scholar pursuing my Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering. I have specialized in Biotechnology during my Bachelor's and Masters. In the course of my Ph.D., I have also learned certain Chemical Engineering techniques and studied few subjects as part of my Ph.D. coursework.
