About Tanja

I am a professor of microbiology and immunology at Tufts University School of Medicine. I enjoy teaching and have recently been very interested in outreach to young students. I enjoy helping kids become interested in the sciences and I communicate my passion for science. I have a child in elementary school and I am the co-chair of her school's Science Fair.

In addition, as a mother of an elementary school child I have become very interested in the public school elementary curriculum, not just science, but also English Language Arts and Mathematics. As a scientist I write a significant amount for a living, publishing research papers and writing grants. Thus, I recognize the importance of developing excellent writing skills from a young age. Although I am not a mathematician, I am a scientist and well versed in elementary level mathematics.

I look forward to meeting you.

I have a PhD in microbiology and I am a professor of immunology and microbiology at Tufts University.

I have a child in elementary school and thus I follow the elementary school curriculum. I am an excellent writer and work well with children. I apply my experience as a college professor and enjoy helping young students.
