I earned High Honors in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry as well as an Ancient History (Classics) degree from Dartmouth College. I then went on to earn a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Structural Biology from Cornell University's Medical College.

As an undergraduate, I spent a semester studying Archeology and History in Greece. Thus I bring first hand knowledge to your history studies. I won the Botany award for my genetic research on plants as an undergraduate, and I have done extensive research in Computational Biology for my Ph.D. dissertation. I was a teaching assistant for both undergraduate and graduate students for a variety of Biology classes.

I am fluent in a range of Science and History disciplines. As an Ivy League graduate, I learned from professors at the very top of their fields. I am excited to pass on this knowledge to you, and I am committed to helping you understand the material you wish to learn.
