Teaching

University Courses

I created a course on macroevolution targeted at upper level undergraduate and graduate students: we cover diversification, symbiosis, game theory, and more. I have also taught large introductory courses and small discussion seminars. Note that the “HOFF joint lab group discussion” was a collaborative lab group meeting of the Hulsey-O’Meara-Fordyce-Fitzpatrick labs.
