I joined Wayne College in Fall of 2013 as an Assistant Professor of Biology. Prior to that, I was a research fellow at the Department of Energy National Energy Technology Laboratory in Pittsburgh, PA from 2009-2013. My fellowship research focused on the bacterial ecology of energy systems with a focus on waters associated with natural gas drilling. From 2004-2009, I completed my doctoral training at Cornell University in the laboratory of Dr. James Shapleigh studying the genetics of denitrifying physiology in bacteria.
