What is your teaching style?

I try to create bridges between prior learning and new material. Theoretical (not actual) bridges—I’m a mechanical engineer, not civil.
 

Why do you do what you do?

When I started engineering classes I vividly remember it being the first time I felt challenged by school. I do what I do because I want to help others feel the exhilaration of “getting it.” Also, engineering is amazing; there are so many varied opportunities out there!

How do you make learning engaging?

I try to relate the material to things the student may have experience with through case studies or real-life examples. I also try to inject humor into the classroom.
 

What should students know about you?

I am always trying to learn something new because there are so many things out there to learn! I enjoy camping with my husband and two children.
