I have extensive teaching experience (close to 20 years), including small-group and one-on-one (effectively tutoring, as a teaching assistant in an upper-level course) as well as several years of community college teaching (Rowan College at Gloucester County); in both, I received high student ratings.

I have a doctorate in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics, as well as a bachelor's degree in biology. I have also always been interested in science in general, and biology in particular, for as long as I can remember.
I have taught both Anatomy and Physiology and Human Biology for a number of years, with high ratings for several years for Rowan College at Gloucester County.
My doctoral research involved significant use of statistics, including statistics that I programmed myself. I have also had several statistics courses. I have a doctorate in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics.
I have a doctorate in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics. I was also teaching Genetics even while I was an undergraduate (Genetics and Evolution course at Earlham College).
My doctoral research was in bioinformatics, the use of computers in biology. For it, I did extensive programming, with most of it being in Perl.
As well as using UNIX (IRIX) computers for my bioinformatics doctoral research, I was also the system administrator for several years. I currently use a Mac with OS X (which is based on UNIX), and frequently go to its command line.
I have taught Human Biology (and Anatomy and Physiology) for a number of years, and included a significant section on nutrition. (Indeed, it was among the sections that I had to worry about not getting through because of personal interest and the amount of material I had put in.)
