Hi There! I'm Andrew Cale
Welcome to my Academic Portfolio!
I'm a first-generation Vietnamese-American, born-and-raised Californian, and aspiring anatomical sciences educator!
I first discovered my love of the anatomical sciences after I enrolled in a cadaver-based gross anatomy course at the University of California, Davis. Inspired by my newfound passion, I pursued a Master's of Science in Modern Human Anatomy at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, where I explored the many aspects of the anatomical sciences.
Currently, I'm a Ph.D. student in the Education Track of the Anatomy, Cell Biology, and Physiology Ph.D. program at Indiana University School of Medicine. My research with my incredible mentor, Dr. Margaret McNulty focuses on evaluating and developing metacognitive skills in healthcare professionals and educators. In the future, I hope to apply my anatomical knowledge as well as my education and research skills towards teaching others about the amazing human body.
When I'm not in the classroom or the anatomy labs, I also work to promote the anatomical sciences as an Ambassador of the American Association for Anatomy and through public outreach events such as Anatomy Nights. In my free time, I enjoy applying my anatomy knowledge as a weightlifter, cooking new recipes (and eating the resulting food), keeping up with the latest superhero/sci-fi movies and shows, and spending quality time with my kitten, Soma.
