Summary

Discover Biology makes biology relevant to students' everyday lives by helping them overcome the big challenges they face-their own apathy about science and the overwhelming amount of information they have to learn in the course. Discover Biology was developed to overcome these challenges and achieve the ultimate goal of every non-majors course-to make students more scientifically literate citizens and voters.

She has taught introductory biology to non-majors for over fifteen years and is recognized for her pedagogical innovations in communicating biological principles in a manner that engages the non-science student and emphasizes the relevance of biology to everyday life. Her research focuses on cell-cell communication in plants, especially self-incompatibility and other pollen-pistil interactions. She has published over a dozen research articles and has received several awards and grants, including a grant from the National Science Foundation.
