Assistant Professor of Biology
TEACRS Alumna - 2010
I joined the TEACRS program after completing my PhD in Biology & Medicine at Brown University in Providence, RI. My research at Tufts was conducted with Ralph Isberg, PhD, Professor of Molecular Biology & Microbiology.
My project focused on Legionella pneumophila, an intracellular microbe that infects human macrophages and the role of mammalian host cell kinases and phosphatases in Legionella infection.
During my TEACRS fellowship, I was a content specialist for an NIH/NCRR funded program to bring science to high school students called "Great Diseases: A Collaborative Approach to Real World Science" and participated in an undergraduate Microbiology course at Wellesley College.
I am continuing my career at Assumption College where I will teach Biology and introduce undergraduates to research using the small DNA virus BK as a model system.
