With over sixteen years of teaching and tutoring experience, I am a personable physicist and educator with research interests in particle astrophysics and education. My PhD work focused on the direct detection of dark matter with the DarkSide Collaboration and I completed my postdoctoral work at the Transportation Security Laboratory working on the detection of explosives.


In addition to adjuncting at Rowan University, I am an Assistant Teaching Professor at Drexel University:


I am an active member of the Association of Women in Science, and I am the Program Chair for a new event, called Start Talking Science, where researchers present non technical posters to the general public: and


I have performed research at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, and Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Assergi, Italy.


Interests: experimental neutrino and dark matter studies, education, and outreach
