a bit about me, a disease ecologist and environmental microbiologist turned academic professional:

Careers are nonlinear, and my journey through academia has given me the opportunity to conduct research domestically and internationally, teach students of all ages, interact with policymakers, and volunteer with organizations who are working to advance change. In my current role, I am working to build community and develop professional development opportunities for postdoctoral scholars at Georgia Tech.
