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 the RNAs and proteins that contribute to the persistence of the bacterial pathogen that causes cholera disease. I teach courses ranging from general chemistry to chemical biology to analysis of scientific literature and have active educational research projects related to these courses. Whether working with students in the laboratory or the classroom, my goal is to teach students the skills necessary to appreciate scientific methodology, to understand the products of science research, to think critically and create their own ideas, and to make the world a more just place.
