Welcome to my website! I am an environmental microbiologist and a professor at Keene State College, located in New Hampshire, USA. This website contains information about my work as a Professor, the classes I teach, my academic research and more. If you are a student please email me if you have any questions or would like to work with me on a project. If you are interested in my larger professional profile, please visit me on Research Gate or LinkedIn.

I’m also a co-founder of the Keene State College STEM Fair for middle school aged students, if you’re interested in that go to this website.

Me (l) and my (now graduated) student Sarah Sanders (r).

Be inspired by Kate Rubins! I got to see this live at ASM Microbe! My favourite part....when she says "when we go to Mars...". Repeatedly.
