I am an Associate Professor of Chemistry and member of the Molecular Biology Program at Pomona College, where I have been a faculty member since 2012. My research projects focus on regulatory RNAs in bacteria and mechanisms that contribute to the persistence of the bacterial pathogen that causes cholera disease. I also teach courses ranging from general chemistry, to chemical biology, to analysis of scientific literature. Whether working with students in the laboratory or the classroom, my goal is to teach students the skills and vocabulary necessary to appreciate scientific methodology, to understand the products of science research, and to think critically and create their own ideas.
