I co-designed and taught "Biophysical Interactions in the Ocean" at the University of Georgia (ENGR 8890). The instructor of record was Dr. Brock Woodson. This course was loosely based on a combination of 2 textbooks that I have found extremely useful for describing plankton ecology and the resulting effects on ecosystem functioning: A Mechanistic Approach to Plankton Ecology by Thomas Kiorboe and Patterns in the Ocean: Ocean Processes and Marine Population Dynamics by Andrew Bakun. The course began with considering the smallest scale interactions (i.e. diffusion into a collecting sphere), gradually working all the way up to larger scale phenomena, such as eddies and their effects on fish and plankton aggregations.

I served as a Teaching Assistant for "Biology of Fishes" (BIL 324) at the University of Miami. The instructor of record was Dr. Robert Cowen.

Currently, I do not have any teaching responsibilities, but I remain active in outreach efforts that engage the local fishing community with ocean science and data collection methods (lead is Dr. Jessica Kastler). My main teaching interests are biological oceanography, general or marine ecology, image processing and analysis for biologists, R and statistical analysis for biologists, and ichthyology.
