Carlos C. Goller is a Teaching Assistant Professor in the Biotechnology Program and Department of Biological Sciences at North Carolina State University. Dr. Goller is committed to implementing evidence-based teaching practices into molecular biology courses and course-based research experiences. Dr. Goller and Dr. Sabrina Robertson launched the NSF-funded HITS network to create inquiry-based case studies that infuse authentic high-throughput discovery into courses and a summer Research Experience for Undergraduates focusing on high-throughput sequencing. Trained as a microbiologist, Dr. Goller uses microbial genetics and high-throughput drug screening and sequencing approaches to learn about the understudied microbes in our homes. By connecting students and participants from different courses and units on campus, he aims to teach citizen scientists about harnessing promising genetic sequences in common microbes through high-throughput approaches. As an educator, Dr. Goller strives to develop, implement, and teach evidence-based pedagogical practices that support student learning and promote inclusivity.
