She received a B.S. in Biology from Loyola University, Maryland and a Ph.D. in Biochemistry/Molecular Biology at Thomas Jefferson University. She then completed postdoctoral training with Dr. Richard Schultz at the University of Pennsylvania. Her laboratory investigates the mechanisms by which protein phosphatases and kinases regulate chromosome segregation during meiosis and is probing the genetics of female infertility.
