I was hired in 2006 as adjunct faculty and 2007 as full-time faculty. Prior to this, I had been teaching and doing research at the Max-Planck Institute for Molecular Biology in Berlin (Germany), SUNY Stony Brook and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories.  

NCC is special to me because of the dedicated faculty we have and the student support we offer. The Carol Farber Honors Program, the Achilles Program, the Aspires Program, the Writing Center and other initiatives offer student support and a large variety of student clubs enable students to develop leadership and teamworking skills. I believe that our small classes not only help students to learn better but also provide a safe environment to learn soft skills, to participate in discussions, to ask questions and to make friends. I love to get students excited about Biology and what nature can teach us.

I am a Liberal Arts major in my second year at NCC. The biggest reason why I chose Nassau Community College is that I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life after high school and saw NCC as the perfect place to explore that.

I am a marketing major and will graduate in 2025. After a rough start at a large four-year university, I chose to attend Nassau Community College. It has a nice campus, a great community, and besides — my mom went here! My best experience so far has been my in-class presentations.

I transferred to NCC to pursue a degree in Nursing. After some sudden life-changing events I needed to be back home with my family. Nassau was the best educational opportunity for me, especially considering my chosen career path. One of my favorite experiences at the College so far has been forming a sense of community with my peers.

For my first semester of college, I attended a large university out of state. As the semester went on, I was feeling more and more detached from the experience. After some contemplation I decided that coming back home for college would be my best choice.

My major is Biology and I am in my second year at NCC. I originally came to Nassau Community College because of the smaller class sizes and proximity to my home but the terrific faculty and flexible class schedules are great as well. As a science major, I would have to say one of my favorite experiences at Nassau has been the hands-on work that we do in the labs during biology classes.
