Scientist - Biological Process Development
TEACRS Alumnus - 2009
I joined the TEACRS Program after completing my PhD in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin in Austin, TX. I conducted my research at Tufts with Jonathan Garlick, DDS, PhD, Professor of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Tufts University School of Dental Medicine.
My research focused on the regulation of microRNA in skin epithelial cells in 3-D models of engineered skin.
As part of my participation in the TEACRS Program, I taught the Introductory Biology course at UMass Boston.
I initially continued my career in the biotechnology industry.
