Hey there! I hold a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) from the University of Connecticut. My dissertation work was focused on investigating airway responses to inhaled environmental toxicants. After performing postdoctoral research in an esteemed toxicology lab at Texas A&M University, I have returned to New England (Boston area) to work in biotech. I am young, energetic, and I have plenty of patience. I had various teaching roles during my doctoral work, including being a teaching assistant for... [more]
I have a B.S. in Biological Sciences from the University of Connecticut (Magna Cum Laude) with a minor in Molecular and Cellular Biology. I have a Ph.D. in Pharmacology/Toxicology from the University of Connecticut. I have had two first-authored publications in the field of toxicological sciences and 3 additional co-authored publications ranging from experiences with stem cell biology, nucleosomal biology, and toxicological sciences.
As part of my Ph.D. work, I was a teaching assistant for Anatomy and Physiology for 2 semesters. My research also requires a great deal of knowledge of Anatomy/Physiology.
My postdoctoral research work is focused on the effects of genetics on individual susceptibility to disease. Additionally, in my graduate work, I completed a rotation in an epigenetics laboratory and published a methods-based peer-reviewed manuscript about the monitoring of nucleosomal modifications in cell lines. I have a fairly strong background in genetics, as my undergraduate studies were in the biological sciences and I have a minor in molecular and cellular biology.
I have a PhD from the University of Connecticut from the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences (Pharmacology and Toxicology program). I am involved in the national Society of Toxicology and have taught a pharmacokinetic/drug metabolism course as a teaching assistant for roughly 6 semesters now.
