Professor, Soils and Ecosystem Ecology

Teaching Statement

As a teacher, my primary goal is to develop knowledge, questioning and application of biological and ecological understanding. My advising approach is geared toward the student’s objectives, and emphasizes the value of primary research for advancing understanding and effective application of scientific evidence. Formal classes at Yale include ‘Soil Science’ (taught every spring from 2020) and 'Landscapes & Ecosystems' (taught every fall).
