Research Assistant/Lab Manager
I grew up in Florida and attended Duke University for my undergraduate degrees in Biology and Evolutionary Anthropology and Anatomy (Go Blue Devils!). After college, I attended Cornell University and earned my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. After a brief stint in equine private practice, I am excited to return to academia and the world of research. My research interest centers on gaining a better knowledge of the immune system and thereby improving our understanding of infectious diseases, autoimmune diseases, and neoplasia. A fun fact about me: on my path to veterinary medicine and beyond, I’ve had crazy experiences such as training lemurs, darting rhinos from a helicopter, and doing physical exams on camels.
