She continued her research as a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard Medical School before joining the faculty at Phillips Academy. An author of high-impact articles on neurodevelopment, Christine’s research experiences inspire her work in our Department of Biology, where she has successfully led our Independent Research Program in Molecular and Cellular Biology for the last decade. Christine has also contributed significant efforts to the development of our biology curriculum, from designing new interdisciplinary electives to incorporating inquiry-centered projects within our core offerings. A recipient of numerous teaching awards, Christine was most recently honored by the National Association of Biology Teachers with their Genetics Education Award at their annual conference this November.
