Adjunct Professor


PhD, Physics (Particle Astrophysics), Temple University, 2013

MA, Physics, Temple University, 2010

BS, Physics Education, West Chester University, 2006

With over seven years teaching and tutoring experience, I am a personable physicist and educator with research interests in nuclear physics, particle astrophysics, and education. Currently, I am an ORISE postdoctoral fellow at the Transportation Security Laboratory, an adjunct professor at Rowan University, and a private tutor to high school students. Some of my awards and honors include graduate awards at Temple University: the Award for Outstanding Teaching and the Scholarship for Outstanding Physics Graduate Students. I am an active member of the Association of Women in Science, and I have volunteered for events such as the Philadelphia Area Girls Enjoying Science (PAGES) Mini-Conference and the Science Leadership Academy Science Fair.

My research interests include topics in particle astrophysics (dark matter, neutrinos), nuclear physics (X-ray CT, radiation detection, bulk explosives detection), and STEM education (literacy and women/minorities). I have performed research at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Gran Sasso National Laboratory, and the Transportation Security Laboratory and I have presented my work at National Nuclear Physics Summer School and APS April Meetings.
