Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences
TEACRS Alumna - 2008
I joined the TEACRS Program after completing my PhD in Cell & Developmental Biology at Harvard University. My research at Tufts was under the direction of Peter Juo, PhD, Assistant Professor of Molecular Physiology & Pharmacology.
My research project used a C elegans model and focused on the molecular circuits involved in regulation of synaptic transmission.
As part of the TEACRS program, I worked with fellow trainee, Jane Liu to develop a senior seminar course on cancer biology that was delivered at Pine Manor College.
As a faculty member in the Department of Biological Sciences at Butler University, I am continuing my research and teaching Biology. I was recently awarded an NINDS R15 Area grant and an NSF TUES to support undergraduate research at Butler.
