Leanne H. Field, Ph.D.

Distinguished Senior Lecturer

School of Biological Sciences

UT Austin

I cannot think of a more rewarding profession than teaching and mentoring students at UT Austin. It is my goal to pass on my love for medical microbiology, human infectious diseases and public health to my students through lecture courses and public health internships that are dynamic, exciting and challenging! I also strive to support my students with personal encouragement, and to model for them what it means to be a generous and caring mentor. Along the way, I find that I am the one who is enriched and fulfilled by having an opportunity to contribute to their lives in such a personal and tangible way.
