Gil Carvalho
PHD IN BIOLOGY, United states
Faculty Member from School of Natural Sciences

Gil Carvalho Teaching philosophy Serving as a teaching assistant at Caltech for 5 years allowed me to obtain first-hand experience and realize the extent of my interest in teaching. I believe in flexible, self-tailored learning, which is one thing that attracts me to the MUST model. The idea of breaking free from the traditional classroom format is something I am excited to contribute to. Besides having studied and taught in Europe and the US, I lived in South America and Africa growing up. This experience has prepared me well to interact with people from diverse cultural backgrounds, which dovetails well with the MUST reality.
