Professor Anna Yeung-Cheung has been teaching at Manhattanville College since 2002. She received her B.S. from National Taiwan University and her M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Georgia. Before Manhattanville, she worked as a research scientist in the virology lab of SUNY Health Science Center in Brooklyn for five years. She was also a serology lab manager at Antech Diagnostics in 2001. She decided to go into teaching after she realized how much she enjoyed tutoring students in her free time. At Manhattanville, Prof. Yeung-Cheung teaches a variety of classes including Principles of Biology, Microbiology, Principles of Virology, Infectious Disease, Introduction to Human Disease, Nutrition in Health & Disease, and First-Year Seminar. “I try to have a fun class, and relate the teaching material to current events and even popular culture whenever possible,” she said. “I went to a college that had some pretty famous scientists as faculties, but everyone would fall asleep in their classes because they did not try to engage the students. So I try to create a fun learning environment for our students.” Prof. Yeung-Cheung’s expertise and research focus mainly on microbial contamination in recreational water and microbial ecology.
