MGM Graduate Student
Box 103020 DUMC
Durham, N.C. 27710
I am originally from the small town of Boston NY, located just south of Buffalo in the western part of the state. I traveled to Connecticut to attend college at Yale University, followed by a year in the real Boston (MA) as a research technician in the Lindquist Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). In 2009, I made the long trip down south to attend Duke, and am currently a graduate student in the Department of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology. I'm a member of the Frothingham Lab at Duke's human vaccine institute where I work on understanding the initial interactions between M. tuberculosis and its host. I'm also an NSF recipient. Outside of lab, I can be found cheering on my beloved Buffalo Bills and Sabres, playing harp with numerous local orchestras (Durham Symphony, Chapel Hill Philharmonia), or volunteering with the MGM outreach group or at the North Carolina museum life and science, or cooking copious amounts of food for friends and lab mates.
