What is one thing that your mother or father taught you that completely changed your life? 
My parents always stressed the value of education and how important it is to strive for excellence

Why did you want to go into Biology?

If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?
I would read more books for pleasure.

Are there any embarrassing teaching moments that you are willing to share? What are they? 
I once fell off a desk backwards.
