Cell Biology, Renal Development and Physiology, Tissue Repair and Regeneration
As a science educator, I am interested in fostering curiosity and ingenuity, promoting critical thinking, and elevating students’ written and oral communication skills. I also have an avid interest in informal science education and science outreach. As a full-time lecturer at Northeastern, I teach BIOL 2309 – Techniques in Biology: An Inquiry-Based Lab. Previously, I have also taught Molecular Cell Biology, Microbiology, Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy, and General Biology.
Prior to joining the faculty at Northeastern University, I also taught Cell Biology, General Genetics, Experiments in Molecular Biology, Experiments in Physiology, and several introductory biology laboratories. As a researcher, I am interested in the dynamic nature of extracellular matrix remodeling during tissue and organ repair. In particular, I am interested in the cellular and molecular mechanisms utilized during renal repair and regeneration.
