Christine has held a few positions that have really shaped her into the person and teacher she is today. She worked as a museum educator at The American Museum of Natural History and as an Introductory Biochemistry teaching assistant at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She has also worked as a researcher at The Hull
Lab for Biochemical Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. There, she was awarded the Hilldale Research Fellowship for my genetic screen on the fungal pathogen Cryptococcus neoformans.
Christine is very passionate about conservation biology and environmental justice. She enjoys volunteering with the Bronx River Alliance in her free time to remove trash from the Bronx River and invasive species from our communities – an activity that her students might join her in. She also loves to sing, practice yoga, and play volleyball.
