Assistant Professor of Biology
Northeastern Illinois University
TEACRS Alumna - 2014
I joined the TEACRS Program after completing my PhD in Molecular & Environmental Toxicology at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. I conducted my research with Mitch McVey, PhD, Associate Professor of Biology.
My postdoctoral research centered on developmental effects in Drosophila resulting from deficiencies in DNA repair machinery. A goal was to help elucidate the role of DNA repair mechanisms during development and cell cycle regulation in multi-cellular organisms.
As part of the TEACRS Program, I taught Cell Biology with lecture and lab at Bunker Hill Community College.
I am continuing my career in research and teaching in the Biology Department at Northeastern Illinois University.
