William Morris said: “The true secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life”.
Understanding how our body works in an ever-changing environment is one of the ways how we can unravel this secret. I have been fascinated by Biology since my early childhood on the remote island of Madagascar. Studying unique species of plants, animals and people, travelling worldwide, understanding biological diversity all led me to become the Director of a Zoo and Botanical Garden after earning a PhD in Biology. Sharing what I have learned and what I am continuing to discover every day is my passion. I have been teaching for more than a decade. Knowing students are grateful for what they enjoyed learning with success about Biology is a truly rewarding experience for both parties.
