Instructor Bio: 

As a microbiologists I've often thought that many of my experiments are technically (or conceptually) easy enough that a high schooler would be able to do them. There are lots of ways to use microbiology, molecular biology, and engineering for fun and interesting projects. I like communicating science in an uncomplicated and unpretentious manner and I'd love to be able to help non-scientists learn about experiments. I'm new to the New Haven, but in NYC I really loved being a part of my university's science outreach, especially when it involved helping other adults.
