a bit about me, a disease ecologist:

I am a postdoctoral fellow with the Fellowships in Research and Science Teaching (FIRST) program at Emory University, which combines a traditional research experience with pedagogical training. I work with Dr. David Civitello on schistosomiasis, a human neglected tropical disease, and am partnering with Drs. Ethell Vereen and Lawrence Blumer at Morehouse College to develop my teaching skills. To learn more about the FIRST program, click here.
