Jennifer Nauen, Ph.D.

Teaching

  • BISC100 - Freshman Seminar for Honors students taking my BISC207 Honors class.
  • BISC207 - Introductory Biology I (cell and molecular biology), Honors and Regular sections
  • BISC208 - Introductory Biology II (organismal and evolutionary biology) Honors and Regular sections
  • BISC422 - Teaching Experience for undergraduates who assist in BISC207 laboratories.

Research Interests

My research training and interests are in experimental design, the biomechanics of locomotion and marine biology.  My focus at UD is teaching introductory biology, and curriculum development for foundational courses in the biological sciences.

Current Projects

National Academies Education Mentor in the Life Sciences 2011-2014.

Member of the UD Chemistry/Biology Integration Interest Group.
