Suzannah Beeler

Assistant Teaching Professor, Chemical and Biological Engineering

Beeler, SuzannahI have spent the last ten years pursuing biology from quantitative perspectives. First as a Mathematical and Computational Biology major at Harvey Mudd College and then as a PhD student in the biophysics group of Rob Phillips at Caltech, I have learned and applied many ways in which quantitative approaches can be brought to bear on biological problems. During my time in graduate school, I took advantage of many opportunities to teach physical biology both on and off campus, nurturing my passion for teaching and mentoring. My teaching has taken me to many far-flung locations including the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts and the Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology in South Korea. With this background in teaching quantitative, mathematical, and computational biology to many different audiences, I look forward to settling down at Mines and instilling in students an appreciation of biology far beyond that of just memorization, but as a discipline that can be approached critically and rigorously.
