I am a microbiologist interested in public health. I love exploring questions about how the world works from the cellular to the societal. I want to be able to use that research to help people and make a difference.

 

​Most recently, I worked as a research associate in the Klepac-Ceraj Lab at Wellesley College investigating how the bacteria in the human gut might affect brain development in children. Before that, I was studying a community of anaerobic photosynthetic bacteria capable of manganese mineral production, a process previously unobserved.

My interests outside the lab include baking sourdough, knitting scarves and sweaters, singing with the Metropolitan Chorale, and playing the carillon, a keyboard instrument connected to bells.
