With more than a dozen years teaching and more doing research, Professor Williams brings a hands-on approach to his students. “A lot of new information is coming out really quickly and I use stories from what I have read, learned or experienced, using my own experience of what I liked in the classroom, to engage my students’ interest. “

Whether teaching about neuroscience, pharmacology, biology, anatomy or any of the fields of natural science, Professor Williams says he enjoys every minute of it. “I love it, I am good at it and there is so much information and things to learn, that it is impossible to be bored. “

They key to success for Professor Williams is loving what you do, whatever the field.

Professor Williams counts the achievements of his students as career highlights. “In 2014 one of my students won best cell/molecular presentation at the Emerging Researchers Conference. Anytime my students do well, that is a highlight for me. ” Recognition of his own work came in 2011 when his paper in Neurochemistry International was commended as a key paper.

Professor Williams is a member of the Society for Neuroscience; American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics

Professor Williams has taught General Biology, Genetics, Cell and Molecular Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, Scientific Writing.

There is so much information and things to learn, in natural science, it is impossible to be bored.
