What I Love About Siena

 Siena has a welcoming staff and sits on a beautiful campus.

My Favorite Courses to Teach

 Evolution, biology, and human health. This course mixes anthropology, biology, and public health to provide students with a novel framework to understand human health and illness.

My Professional Experience
