Raven the Science Maven
Buffalo/Niagara, New York Area
I have expertise, experience, and qualities that aren't often found together. I create compelling science content and course offerings combining disciplinary expertise, pedagogical research, and the realities of today's classrooms. I am a dedicated biologist and academic professional with over 7 years of broad-based experience in STEM education and research– providing extensive instruction expertise and experience in several roles as an academic program director, professor, and corporate molecular research scientist. I am a lifelong champion for diversity and equity in STEM fields with a proven track record of creating outstanding culturally responsive STEM learning environments that serve underrepresented students at the K-12 and university level.
As Raven the Science Maven, I combine my technical background in molecular biology and education, with my creative talents in music and comedy. I aim to positively influence science culture by being my authentic self and contributing my voice and creativity in communicating science.
