I teach in order to pass on to the next generation a love of learning and a way to ensure that the hard-earned knowledge we have gained through the centuries is not lost.  My major teaching goal is to inspire students to embrace lifelong learning, staying up-to-date in their field while recognizing past contributions. I encourage students to explore the world around them and make connections between their work and other parts of their lives by infusing the scientific knowledge in my lectures with historical, cultural and humanitarian components and values.
