I studied cellular biology and chemistry at UW-Oshkosh while also being involved in numerous elected campus leadership roles. I’ve worked here at the Eye Institute for over 10 years, and I’ve been a part of the Advanced Ocular Imaging Program for 8 years.

Research Interests

My main role within the AOIP is the collection, organization and storage of all of our subject data. I work with the bulk of our image processing as well as assist the research staff and students on numerous projects. I am continually working on ways to improve the functionality and accessibility of our research data. As the mission and vision of the AOIP expands, so too does the demand to maintain an efficient work environment for our research staff. I’m also exploring new opportunities to develop an increased analytical role within the program.
