PhD, Boston University School of Medicine, 2010
I am a full-time educator providing lectures and laboratory instruction in the VIC Human Structure and Function, and Neural Science courses. I also participate in the DPT Human Gross Anatomy (ANNB 201) and Human Neuroscience (ANNB 302) course, and the undergraduate Human Neuroanatomy (ANNB 225) course. I have educational research activities that involve developing, implementing, and evaluating educational techniques for helping students to learn embryology, three-dimensional anatomy and neuroanatomy, and for transitioning anatomical knowledge from the classroom into the clinical setting.
Although not actively involved in research currently, previous research activities analyzed, using imaging techniques, alterations in the structure and function of subregions of the brain, especially in Alzheimer’s Disease.
I am the Director of the Anatomical Gift Program at the University of Vermont College of Medicine. This whole-body donation program allows for the education of current and future medical professionals, educational outreach, and the advancement of research and science.
