My graduate work focused on characterization of Lymphatic Endothelial Cells (LECs) and their role in SIV/HIV transmission and propagation of infection. Originally from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, I have worked in industry as a Staff Scientist at Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories Inc. (ELLI), where I was a member of the Viral Safety and Clearance Services Department. I left ELLI in June 2013 to join Moriah Szpara's lab here at Penn State as a Research Technologist.
