I am a Professor of Biology at Amherst College and a jazz musician. I teach a course for first-year students called "Improvisational Thinking" which explores the creative improvisational process in a wide range of disciplines and areas. I also teach introductory, cell and developmental biology. I have 40 years of experience in playing jazz and currently perform with the Amherst Jazz Orchestra and the Eclectic Jazz Quartet on baritone and alto sax, clarinet and bass clarinet.
