What makes you excited about your subject, and why do you like teaching it?
[In research] you have a tendency to focus on one topic for so long that sometimes you feel somewhat rigid. I think just on a personal point, I think teaching is an opportunity for me to kind of flex muscles I haven’t flexed in a while.”
What is one thing that students should know about you?
“I know in an institution like this grades are very important, and I respect that, but for me, what’s important to me is that what students learn here empowers them.”
