I provide feedback to less experienced faculty members to improve their lecture presentation as well as the clarity and effectiveness of written materials, such as syllabus sections, exam questions, problem sets and explanations of Physiological phenomena.

I have been a first or second reader of several theses by Masters students, and I help with organization, clarity and style.
