In Thomas Schwartz’s lab, I use structural biology to investigate important cellular processes. This requires a lot of empirical trial and error, which I really like. Serving as a teaching assistant has allowed me to revisit fundamental biological concepts and see my own research from a different angle. When I help undergraduate students understand these ideas, I reconnect with the science on a deeper level. As a teacher, I think it’s important to be encouraging and welcoming, and to share the human side of science.
