I received my B.S. in Biochemistry and M.S. in Genetics both from Clemson University and my Ph.D. in Biology from The University of Mississippi. My dissertation work focused on gene regulation in Drosophila melanogaster, specifically genes that regulate how neurons and glia become different from each other. In 2016 I began a postdoc in Medical Education with Duke School of Medicine, specifically working with the Master of Biomedical Sciences program. I continue to teach these students as well as first year medical students in my role as Assistant Professor of the Practice of Medical Education. My current research interests focus on best practices to prepare medical students to encounter medical misinformation in the clinical setting and best practices and strategies to mitigate medical misinformation among the general public.
