I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Hematology and Medical Oncology at the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University (Atlanta, GA). I direct a research laboratory focused on cancer biology with a heavy emphasis on cell biology and microscopes. My work is funded by the National Cancer Institute, and cancer research foundations. More information on my research can be on my lab’s site.
I also co-founded a community outreach program, Students for Science, that travels with microscopes to schools across Georgia. We have visited many public and private schools in both urban and rural communities. We like to think we are making a difference by bringing unique science into the classroom. My laboratory and Students for Science help bring together my two professional goals- make a difference in the lives of cancer patients and help train the next generation of scientists.
I have also given numerous research seminars at major medical institutions across the US and have also spoken at many high school assemblies and scientific advocacy groups. I have given a TEDx talk and absolutely enjoy public speaking. I try to incorporate the latest cutting-edge science into my talks.
