NUCLEI Purpose


By definition, the nucleus is the central and most important part of an object, movement, or group; forming the basis for its activity and growth. At NUCLEI, our goal is to be the central resource for educators and catalyze the growth and success of every learning environment. 

The greatest challenge in science education is to condense an expansive volume of literature and make it accessible for educators to use in their classrooms. At NUCLEI, we aim to overcome this challenge. Our science-based services support the education and implementation of pedagogy in all learning environments. We provide data-driven resources to aid in the creation of safe and unbiased learning environments and provide expert-crafted content to supplement learning materials. Let the support and resources at NUCLEI be at the center of your learning environment.

I founded NUCLEI Learning after almost ten years of teaching at the collegiate level; after identifying the large gap in accessibility between science education data and our educators. Nearly a decade ago, I began my PhD training in immunobiology at Yale University. I began teaching undergraduate science courses and found my passion for pedagogy. After six years of training and teaching at Yale, I graduated with my PhD in immunobiology and teaching certificate. I then joined the Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology Department at Harvard and gained experience in curriculum design and course development. My educational and teaching journey has made me understand that education is synonymous with freedom and opportunity and that our educators are the key to the successful education of future generations. My goal in founding NUCLEI is to create the ultimate resource for educators of all levels and help them create a successful learning environment. If we can uplift and support our educators, we can unlock the power of learning.
