I earned a Master’s degree at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania in 1995. I received a PhD from the State University of New York at Buffalo in 2000. I was also a Beckman Fellow postdoc at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology at the University of Illinois At Urbana-Champaign from 2000-2003.
