As a Senior Instructor with the department, I have three main duties:
1. Third year Biochemistry lecturer
My main interest is on cellular metabolism and its role in the human body. I teach carbohydrate metabolism in Biochemistry 300 (general biochemistry) and lipid metabolism in Biochemistry 303 (major and honors biochemistry). I also teach entire summer session of Biochemistry 300, which runs from mid-July to mid-August.
2. Academic Advisor for the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Department
I am an academic advisor with a focus on admissions, program and course selection, and academic standing and graduation.
3. Problem Based Learning (PBL) tutor/instructor in the Faculty of Medicine
As part of our department’s ongoing commitment to the faculty of medicine, I am a tutor for both the “pulmonary” and “fluids, electrolytes, renal & genitourinary (FERGU)” blocks in the first year medical program.
I am also the departmental WebCT administrator and serve on the departmental teaching committee.
