My focus is to help students to become independent learners and to get ready for future challenges. This means that beyond the disciplines I teach, I help students to develop the generic skills essential to life-long learners.

From our science graduates, we expect generic skills such as:

Solid numeracy skills
High problem-solving ability
Confidence to deal with large datasets and complex information
Excellent computer skills
Excellent written and oral communication skills
Capacity to work as a member of a culturally diverse team

I teach my classes in a way to enhance these skills.
