Assistant Professor of Chemistry
TEACRS Alumna - 2008
I joined the TEACRS Program in 2005 after completing my PhD in Organic Chemistry at Harvard University. I conducted my research at Tufts under the direction of Andrew Camilli, PhD, Professor of Molecular Biology & Microbiology.
My research focused on pathogenesis mechanisms involving RNA-mediated regulation using a Vibrio cholerae model system.
In addition to my research, I worked with fellow TEACRS trainee Jennifer Kowalski to develop a senior seminar course focused on cancer biology. This course was presented at Pine Manor College.
I first accepted a position as a faculty member in the Chemistry Department at Drew University. I recently accepted a new position and have moved to Ponoma College where I am introducing undergraduates to research through studies on RNA-mediated regulatory processes.
In 2012, I was awarded an NSF Career Award, and have recently established an initiative with TEACRS to place minority students from Pomona in summer research internships at Tufts.
