PhD in neuroscience, experience teaching undergraduate courses, grad students and med students

Methodology

I am a PhD with over 13 years experience as a research scientist. I have taught undergraduate college courses in genetics, human physiology, microbiology and Biomedical Sciences. I have also taught medical students in lecture and lab. I also have experience tutoring elementary students , junior high middle school and high school students in all subjects.

Background

I have taught undergraduate college courses ranging in classroom sizes of 30 - 100 students. I have several years experience as a substitute teacher in k-12 students with an average classroom size of 30 students. In total, I have over 15 years experience as an educator.

RESEARCH EXPERIENCE
Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center Cincinnati, OH Postdoctoral Fellow; PhD 2012- current “The role of early-life stress in programming life-long maladaptive behavior”
• Examined brain nuclei-specific whole-transcriptome profiles associated with early-life stress in murine model of maternal neglect
• Assessed epigenetic alterations in F1 and F2 generations of early-life stress offspring
• Performed stereotaxic lentiviral gene delivery to amygdala of adult mice to reverse effects of early-life stress
Vanderbilt University Medical Center Nashville, TN Postdoctoral Fellow; 2009-2011
“The role of early-life stress in programming life-long maladaptive behavior”
• Developed a mouse model of maternal neglect to mimic early-life stress in humans for interrogation of the sustained transcriptomic and epigenetic alterations associated with early-life stress
• Characterized behavioral phenotype of early-life stress mouse model utilizing neurobehavioral assays to measure sociability, anxiety, depression, cognition, fear, and memory behavior
Vanderbilt University Medical Center Nashville, TN Postdoctoral Fellow; “The development of reciprocal circuitry in the mammalian forebrain”
• Characterized gene expression patterns of axonal guidance family members Eph-ephrins and
semaphorins in mouse brain to interrogate their role in the formation of thalamocortical
connectivity during development

SKILLS AND TECHNIQUES
• Isolation of RNA techniques and downstream applications
• Transcriptomic RNA applications including RNA seq and single cell neuronal RNA seq in mouse brain
• Quantitative RT-PCR
• Immunohistochemistry and fluorescence microscopy
• In situ hybridization
• Epigenetic techniques and analysis
• Mouse brain survival surgery techniques including stereotaxic lentiviral injections for gene delivery or deletion
• Neurobehavioral testing using murine models
• Supervised and trained more than 10 undergraduate, graduate and medical students with small independent projects
• More than 6 semesters of teaching experience as adjunct professor of lecture and laboratory college level courses for undergraduate students including human biology, genetics and physiology courses
