I am interested in examining how nerve injury affects bone structure and metabolism. I am currently investigating the contributions of mechanical forelimb unloading on bone in a rat model. I’ve enjoyed being in Raleigh for two years after relocating from Pennsylvania. I love to discover new hiking trails, cook, create DIY beauty products, and watch The Office.
