10-2007 -02-2009 Research Assistant in Department of Bioinformatics, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Mentor: Dr. Brett Tyler), Using a novel technology in the double-barrel particle bombarder we characterized the effects of various mutations to the soybean pathogen effector Avr1b on cell-mediated death. Various mutations to the C-terminal were constructed then individually introduced into soybean leaves using the gene gun. Ultimately, we were looking for certain mutations that decreased the ability of the Avr1b effector to prevent cell-mediated death in soybeans. ,
05-2009 -09-2009 Research Assistant in Department of Biology, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Mentor: Dr. Dana Hawley), This project sought to evaluate how logging techniques influence the abundance of mosquitoes that are good vectors of arboviruses such as West Nile or LaCrosse virus. We explored this by comparing the presence of competent vertebrate reservoirs such as songbirds and chipmunks in various locations in the Jefferson National Forest to examine how this form of land use alters vector and host communities, as well as their interaction. ,
05-2011 -08-2011 Research Fellow in Department of Surgery, University of North Carolina School of Medicine (Mentor: Dr. Tom Egan), This project supplemented research being done on whole lung transplantation from non-heart beating donors. Our aims were to characterize the time course of RhoA and Rac-1 activation during stimulated cold ischemia reperfusion injury in human pulmonary microvascular endothelial cells. ,
05-2010 -07-2010 Peacework, Blacksburg, VA, Planned and executed a marketing campaign targeting Colleges and Universities across the United States that would foster partnerships between the schools and Peacework. These partnerships ultimately led to projects designed to foster community engagement, economic development, and social change in cities and villages around the world.,
02-2009 -07-2010 Lakeview Behavioral Healthcare, Blacksburg, VA, Worked with adults with brain injuries and severe pervasive development disorders. ,

07-2016-06-2018 Research Fellowship, Department of Surgery, University of Cincinnati (Mentor: Michael Goodman, MD), The research focused on the sequelae of traumatic brain injury. We utilized two separate murine models, a mild repetitive model to replicated chronic traumatic encephalopathy and a moderate model. We studied chronic hippocampal degeneration and behavioral changes in our repetitive mild model and studied platelet dysfunction in our moderate model.,
