About Me

I am an Associate Professor of Environmental Microbiology at a branch campus

(Harrisburg) of Penn State University.  My research focuses on the use of

microorganisms to remediate environmental contamination, the design of low-impact

waste treatment technologies and emerging pathogens in the environment. 

Much of my work has involved collaborations with both public health professionals and

engineers.  In fact, for many years I was the only scientist and the only woman in an

Engineering Program (Talk about lonely). 

I have balanced the conflicting requirements of a family and career (although how

successful that balance has been is still an open question) and would be happy to

share my experiemces and insights with younger women.
