Research Interests

As an instructor, I have a strong interest in preparing students for a variety of careers in the life sciences and supporting life-long learning in STEM. Specifically, I am interested in creating an engaging classroom using evidence-based techniques that promote student learning. My favorite area of biology is cell biology. My Ph.D. work used baker's yeast as a model organism to study protein trafficking, a process often disrupted in neurodegenerative disease and plant cell wall defects.
