Research Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences

The best thing about my research is getting to see the distribution of elements inside cells and tissues. I use spatially resolved elemental mapping to characterize the function of genes involved in metal transport. In my current work, I am mapping the environmental contaminants arsenic, lead, cadmium, and mercury in human placental tissue to understand how these elements influence fetal health.
