Q: What was your career path after graduation?
A: After graduating from Villanova I went to graduate school at the University of Pittsburgh and earned my PhD in bioengineering. I completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and then worked at two Pittsburgh-based start-up companies, Falcon Genomics and Accel Diagnostics, where I was Head of Engineering for four years. During that time, I started teaching physics part time at Robert Morris University, and, a year ago, started a full-time teaching position in biomedical engineering technology at Penn State New Kensington.
Q: What are you doing now?
A: I am the program coordinator for the Biomedical Engineering Technology Program at Penn State New Kensington, and am also an instructor in that program.
