Director in Residence of Laboratories
Department of Biology
PhD, Northwestern University; BS, Davidson College
I earned a PhD in Molecular Biology and Genetics from Northwestern University studying the role of protein ubiquitination and the APC/C complex in Drosophila melongaster. After research and teaching post-doctoral fellowships at Harvard Medical School, I decided to dedicate my research to science teaching and curriculum development. Currently, I teach Biology 100, 110, 210 and upper level courses for majors, including developmental and cell biology. I am also developing interdisciplinary general education courses for non-majors and laboratory, research-based courses for science majors.
