Biography

I received a combined BS and MS from Bielefeld University, Germany, where I studied Biology and English. I earned my PhD in Biology from Utah State University and completed a 2-year postdoctoral fellowship at the Institute of Antiviral Research, USU. In 2014, I joined the NDFS faculty as Research Assistant Professor.


Research Interests

Structure-function relationships at the micro-and ultrastructural level.
