I attended Cornell University and double majored in biochemistry and business management. After graduation I worked for a small start up company developing HIV therapeutics which solidified my love of research. I then attended Dartmouth Medical School where I worked on malaria and toxoplasma parasites and received my PhD in biochemistry. I was hooked on infectious and vector-borne diseases and came to Yale Medical School to complete a post-doctoral fellowship on Lyme disease and other tick-borne infections. I stayed on and became faculty in the Section of Rheumatology and have continued to investigate tick-borne diseases and the immune responses to them. I also pursued my love of teaching and teach both medical and undergraduate students.
