Galápagos Curriculum 2017

During the Spring 2017 semester I was honored to teach the First-Year Writing Seminar (FWS) component of the Galápagos Curriculum. We had a wonderful group of 10 Cornell biology undergraduates and took an amazing trip to the Galápagos Islands during Spring Break. Teaching an FWS was a great opportunity for me to get more teaching experience, as I designed and implemented all aspects of the course.


First field season

I have recently returned from my first field season in Nebraska and Colorado working on northern flickers. I was performing a transect across the hybrid zone following the Platte River. I had the great pleasure of working with Brianna Mims, a Cornell undergraduate and former student in the Galapagos course. For a portion of our time we stayed at University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Cedar Point Biological Station and had a great experience!
