Description of class

It’s no secret that scientific literature is daunting. Papers covering topics you didn’t even know could be so niche are filled with walls of cryptic text and figures. Regardless, these writings hold pertinent information, and easily accessible knowledge shouldn’t be intimidating. Together, we’ll take a look at scientific writing to create a way to approach them, finding out just how to navigate their text and determining quickly whether a paper’s information is relevant to you.

Additional Info

In this short session, we’ll scale the deceptively short wall scientific papers build up. 


I am a rising Sophomore at Cornell University. Currently, I’m pursuing a degree in Biological Sciences. Be it through conducting and presenting lab work in class, collaborating to establish case theories and testimonies in mock trial, or carrying out lessons as a children’s Bible study leader, I love working with others to ensure mutual growth.

Since childhood, I’ve been fascinated with the study of organisms, both past and present, and I wish to share this passion. 

I was at the top of my AP Biology course and am more than willing to offer aid in the course, along with sharing what I’ve been taught in collegiate courses. 


I can also offer advice in the world of research to prime prospective undergraduates. Coming in, scientific literature can seem intimidating, but I can share what I’ve been taught to mitigate that. Together we can learn to dissect daunting papers and communicating science accessibly.
