Teaching is one of my greatest joys. At Rice, I was a teaching assistant for:

Before I left the Yau Lab, I gave a little tutorial on model building and fitting.

I was also a mentor at BrainSTEM, an after-school neuroscience program at KIPP Sunnyside High School. The program serves to promote interest in STEM and neuroscience to underrepresented minorities.

coll 158: how music plays the brain

By far, my favorite teaching endeavor has been bringing COLL 158: “How Music Plays the Brain.” to life: I designed and taught 3 semesters of this seminar course on the intersection of music and neuroscience.

Visiting CAMRI

COLL 158 visits Baylor College of Medicine’s Center for Advanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging

“Students will leave this course having developed a greater appreciation for the power of music through dialogues between an age-old art and a budding field of science.” -– lofty goals from the course syllabus

So, did I fulfill my promises? :p
