Curriculum Vitae


Office: SC5512



Cells under stress exhibit a myriad of responses, many of which cannot be measured using traditional toxicological methods.  My doctoral research, under the advisement of Dr. David Cliffel at Vanderbilt, focused on using electrochemical sensors to perform real-time toxicology by monitoring changes in cellular metabolism in response to external stresses. My work at Florida International University builds on my doctoral research, using novel electrochemical sensors for investigations of neuronal disease.
