We will take a doodle poll to set regular office hours based upon T/R or W/F section. However, we do offer supplemental office hours before big assignments are due.
What times on Sundays (all), Mondays (T/R section), and Tuesdays (W/F section) are you available for occasional office hours? We have held office hours in the evening in the past, but day time slots are best.
Sundays I am free almost at any time. Tuesdays I have lecture from 11-2:30 and tennis practice ranging from 4-7.

I worked in the Niles lab last spring and summer with a graduate student who was studying Plasmodium falciparum, the malaria parasite. I built a recombinant DNA tool to help elucidate the function of a putative splicing factor.
For example, please let us know if you have any special glove requests, namely XS or XL size, or nitrile material -- we carry latex S/M/L by default.
What is your favorite food or song or song about food?
I like all kinds of cheese. My favorite song changes too frequently so I don't really know what it is right now. And unfortunately, I don't know any good songs about food, although I am open to recommendations.
