Larry Bowman is a Ph.D. Candidate in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and researches how biodiversity is generated and maintained using population genetics and molecular ecology. His diverse teaching background includes elementary STEM, secondary mathematics, and undergraduate sciences. He has taught abroad several times, most recently as a TALMA fellow, teaching English to Israeli students through the lens of STEM. Larry was an NSF Graduate K-12 fellow where he translated STEM research into K-12 classrooms. He was the recipient of a Digital Education Innovation grant from the Yale CTL and is engaged in outreach activities in the local community. In Fall 2017, Larry will be an Associate in Teaching for Limnology, a new field-based course he co-designed and will co-teach with his advisor David Post. Larry hopes to use his experience as a CTL fellow and CIRTL Scholar to help fellow graduate students approach teaching as a scientific endeavor and bring their research into the classroom.
