Courses

I obtain great professional satisfaction from teaching and consider education a FJW teaching labfundamental responsibility of academic scientists and faculty members. I believe that teaching should provide students with a rigorous understanding of the theoretical bases, underlying mechanisms, limits of current knowledge, and the relevant research methods pertinent to a particular subject. I also strive to communicate the joys and frustrations of field research. Consequently, my teaching philosophy is geared toward White-FIG-field-trip-smallinvolving students in active thinking and scientific reasoning. This involves giving students hands-on research experience through laboratory and experiential activities that focus on hypothesis testing, behavioral observations, ecological measurements, and computer statistical analysis. I also try to present students with opportunities for independent study projects. I teach courses on primate behavior, primate ecology, primate evolution, human anatomy, evolution of human behavior and sexuality, and biological statistics.
