I am very passionate about teaching science to students interested in Biology, as well as to those who need to fill a science requirement. My main interest as a professor is to engage all students in the process of learning and to help them to develop their critical thinking abilities. I like to encourage students' participation by creating a class environment of mutual respect that facilitates the expression of differing points of view.
I have done research for many years in the areas of biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology, and I like to extend the knowledge and experience gained in my research work to the teaching of Biology.
What I Love About Emmanuel:
What I love about Emmanuel are the small classes, because it allows me to know my students and help them to succeed.
Selected publications from a total of 40 published in peer-reviewed journals:
I am very interested in the area of cell signaling: how cells receive and transmit signals. Over the years, I have addressed the role of subcellular localization in the signaling pathways of molecules such as nitric oxide synthase and plant protein kinases. The goal of my last research project was to understand how B cells respond to endogenous ligands and how this response might contribute to the development of lupus, an autoimmune disease that affects mainly women.
