Teacher & Student Ambassadors

Dr. Angela Hahn earned a Ph.D. in Molecular and Cellular Physiology from Stanford University and BS in Biochemistry from Beloit College. In addition to her publications, she received a patent for live-cell biosensor polypeptides and earned a postdoctoral research fellowship on myelination research at the University of California, San Francisco. Though she found bench science intriguing, she decided that teaching provided her with just the right challenge. With 10+ years of teaching experience at the middle school through college level, Dr. Hahn has taught upper school Biology, Chemistry, Evolution and Public Health and Human Disease project-based electives at BASIS Independent School and Friends Seminary in New York, and most recently at Morristown Beard School in New Jersey. When Dr. Hahn has some free time she enjoys hiking, painting, sewing, and spending time with her super cat, Stanley.
