Associate Professor

  • Ph D in Biology, Princeton University

In the Biology program, I teach Principles of Biology I, Cell Biology, and Molecular Biology. I also teach a course on Stem Cells as part of the Honors program.


My research uses the nematode C. elegans to study cell migration. We are particularly interested in the regulation of cell adhesion, changes in gene expression, and cell signaling.
