Hi! I joined Elizabethtown College in 2004. Along the way, I earned my B.S. in Biology at the University of Michigan and both my M.S. in Entomology and Ph.D. in Ecology at the University of Georgia. Currently I teach introductory biology courses, as well as Microbiology, Pathogenic Microbiology, and Microbial Ecology. My research focus is on understanding microbial communities and diversity. I’m particularly interested in how microorganisms influence human and environmental health.
