Participated in the summer youth ECOTEK Program at MTU, Houghton, MI.
The program provides students ages 10 to 17 with the opportunity to work on science projects. I hosted a high school student (William Marshall) to participate in the ongoing research in the lab.
Spring Semester: CH5900: Chemistry Graduate Seminar: I gave one hour lecture on how to critically read a research paper. (Course supervisor: Dr. Patricia Heiden).
CH3541: Biophysical Chemistry lab: I gave one hour lecture on how to critically read a research paper. (Laboratory supervisor: Ms. Kelly Smith).
I also evaluate students' research paper presentations and provide feedback to them.
CH4721: Research Methods in Biomolecular Chemistry: I hosted two undergraduate students (Tanya Johnson and Christopher Douglas) in lab for 5 weeks of research.
