My interest is in how steroid hormones control growth and how deregulation of this control contributes to cancer.
What is your passion? I am really passionate about everyone’s right to embrace their own passions and reach their maximum potential. For me, that means appreciating creative endeavors, be it through art, science or teaching.
What advice do you have for undergrads, grads, postdocs seeking careers in STEM fields? You are In control of your own future. Sometimes that means falling down, but that only gives us the opportunity to climb higher.
Are you involved in any outreach programs (campus, state, or national)? On campus, I am on the board for the SciMED GERS program for graduate students. Nationally, I am active with the Ford Foundation with the goal of increasing diversity in academia. I work with groups at NIH, American Association for Cancer Research and the Endocrine Society to support researchers from under-represented groups . I mentor young faculty from minority institutions.
What do you like to do when you’re away from work? My favorite thing is to spend time with my family. We enjoy traveling as well as eating and cooking foods from all different cultures. I also fly fish and enjoy soccer.
