Course Syllabi

 

Invasive species, Water Quality, San Francisco Estuary, Trophic Dynamics
B.S., San Francisco State University, 2007; M.S. San Francisco State University, 2010
I am a full-time instructor in the Environmental Science Department. I am a Marine Biologist by training and my background includes work on invasive species, benthic-pelagic coupling, water quality, plankton population dynamics, bioaccumulation and magnification studies, and how carbon moves through ecosystems. My graduate research was the first to focus on the feeding ecology of an invasive bivalve on a specific size class of plankton in the San Francisco Estuary. You can read about it here.

Before coming to De Anza I was an instructor at Diablo Valley College in the Biology and Oceanography Departments. I also worked as a Biologist at the U.S. Geological Survey. In my work as an educator, I strive to present a different idea of what a scientist looks like. I love science and I love to learn from my students. In my spare time, I am a passionate Oakland A's fan and a trapeze artist.
