Visiting Assistant Professor of Biochemistry & Chemistry
TEACRS Alumna - 2010
I joined the TEACRS Program after completing my PhD in Chemical & Biological Engineering at the University of Colorado, Boulder, CO. I conducted my research at Tufts with Pamela Yelick, PhD and Hyunmin Yi, PhD.
My work centered first on tissue engineering approaches for artificial teeth. Later in my training, I worked on n fabricating biosensors for biomedical or environmental applications.
As part of my TEACRS Program activities, I taught General Chemistry at Bunker Hill Community College.
After completing TEACRS, I served on the Biology faculty at Bunker Hill Community College and at Emmanuel College. I am now at Suffolk University.
