As a kid growing up in rural New Hampshire, I was always fascinated by living things. I wondered how they work, and by the time I went to college, I was sure I wanted to spend my life trying to figure that out. I decided to study Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of New Hampshire. I started working in a research lab as a freshman, and over my six years at UNH, I earned my bachelors and masters degrees while working in cancer biology and evolutionary biology­focused labs. As I studied at UNH, I discovered that the best window for me to understand how life works was through the lens of biophysics. I continued my studies by earning a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics at the University in Pennsylvania while studying the interactions between water molecules and hormones. I also did my postdoctoral studies at Penn, examining the relationship between the dynamics of proteins and their surrounding environment and how those interactions influence protein function. Since joining the faculty of Rowan University in 2014, my research lab has continued pursuing my interest in understanding how life works and building on what we learn to advance nanotechnology applications for biomedical problems. Most of our work focuses around the use of nanobubbles called reverse micelles to encapsulate proteins and other materials for a wide range of uses. I will discuss our ongoing projects and highlight the roles the students play in our work. I will also talk about the processes I have used to help me make decisions along my career path.
