I have taught cadaver-based human gross anatomy for health professionals at several schools over the last 10 years. Some of the courses and locations I have taught include:
I am also a faculty instructor in paleoanthropology at the Koobi Fora Field School. This field school combines traditional instruction with field-based research projects collecting original data relevant for hominin evolution.

I taught Research in Ecology and Evolution (BIO 489) at Stony Brook University, a project-based course for senior undergraduates that emphasized the application of morphometric techniques.
I am also engaged in public outreach through digital media and in-person events. I have hosted introductory and advanced anatomy-focused outreach events for grade school, high-school, and community college students. Many of my public engagement efforts have focused on rural communities, where science is less accessible. I am actively working towards publicly-accessible written science, which can impact a larger community online (for instance, click here) and through social media initiatives (as the social media coordinator for CASHP). I also work to promote professional awareness about barriers to scientists of different backgrounds, ethnicities, and genders through various groups and committees, including the CASHP Diversity in Science group, the AAPA Student Meet and Greet Committee, and the steering committee for the AAPA Presidential Panel on Harassment.
