"The learning that occurs in dissection is qualitatively different from the learning that occurs in a lecture or paper-and-pencil setting. No model, no video, no diagram, and no movie can duplicate the fascination, the sense of discovery, wonder and even awe that students feel when they find real structures in their own specimens".

Susan Offner, a former Outstanding Biology Teacher Award recipient

I am an anatomist by training working on anatomical variations, and the significance of these findings to minimize surgical mortality and morbidity. I am particularly enthusiastic about the idea of expanding our definitions of science to be more inclusive of applied and relevant contributions to societal issues. Furthermore, I designed a multidimensional outreach mentorship program that emphasizes mentee wellbeing and the capability to incorporate knowledge, critical thinking, and professional skills.
