Assistant Professor of Biology
TEACRS Alumnus - 2012
I joined TEACRS after completing my PhD in Cellular & Molecular Biology at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. I did my research with Claire Moore, Professor of Molecular Biology & Microbiology
My research sought to clarify the molecular role of RNA 3’-end processing factors in promoting transcription termination. As the essential nature of co-transcriptional RNA maturation becomes better understood, an increasing number of connections to human diseases like cancer are being discovered.
As part of the TEACRS Program, I taught undergraduate Genetics at Bunker Hill Community College last fall and helped with a major redesign of the laboratory portion of the course.
I plan to continue my research in my new position.
