Doctoral candidate with drive and passion to represent, as well as mentor, girls and women in the STEM fields. I have completed all of my coursework and passed both the Chemical Engineering Qualifying and Comprehensive Examinations. I plan to defend my dissertation in spring of 2014. As such, I am actively searching for a job to start in May/June. Please feel free to contact me with any job opportunities or consulting inquiries.

Research Highlights

My current research is focused on membrane proteins implicated in various forms of cancer progression.  I am working on developing spatial stochastic mathematical models to study how the protein’s kinetics and dynamics impact receptor activation and downstream signaling.

I received dual Bachelor degrees in Chemical Engineering (B.Ch.E.) and Quantitative Biology (B.S.) from the University of Delaware in 2010. While at the University of Delaware, my research focused on developing a multi-scale process model to aid in creating an online controller for MAb glycosylation.
