Maintaining an active research program is important not only to stay on top of new results, but it also has the desirable effect of bringing the enthusiasm of new discoveries into my teaching. I consider teaching to be extremely important and have devoted considerable effort toward improving both the content and delivery of my lectures. My teaching style is rooted in the philosophy that students must engage the material in order to maximize their learning experience. To this end, I always encourage students to be active rather than passive learners. I also strongly believe that students must appreciate the historical context of how scientific discoveries are acquired through research and experimentation.
