Hi everyone! My name is Ysabel Lacanlale and I am a fourth year Global Disease Biology major with a Public Health Sciences minor. I am the new Learning and Teaching Support Student Program Assistant here in the Center of Educational Effectiveness. I am incredibly excited to be part of the team and support the program which provides a wide range of resources for all the UCD faculty and graduate students to enhance and advance their teaching and foster effective learning for all my fellow Aggies. Being surrounded by the staff, faculty, and graduate students who are very passionate on improving the education of diverse undergraduate students like me is an honor and an excellent opportunity to gain new knowledge, skills, and experiences in general!
For leisure, I enjoy outdoor adventures such as kayaking, rafting, mountain biking, as well as learning different cultures and languages (I am currently learning Korean, Mandarin, and German). I also become a nerd when I hear people having a conversation about infectious diseases too, so watch out!
