I am passionate about expanding our pool of scientific knowledge and training the next generation. This has lead me to obtain my PhD, and now continue into a postdoctoral position at Cornell University. I am currently tackling the effects of chronic infection in Drosophila melanogaster together with two talented undergraduate researchers in the Lazzaro lab.

I believe that biology education should focus on training critical thinking and instilling a passion for biology through connections to everyday life. This is critical not only for future researchers, but for the entire community.

Prof. Chambers

I'm a Michigan native who has journeyed across the US for the sake of education, research and new adventures. As an Assistant Professor of Biology at Bucknell Univesity, I spend the majority of my time teaching students about the wonders of Biology.

I am also building a research program studying the intersection of immunity, behavior and metabolism during infection and am looking for motivated students who want to learn about how to infect Drosophila!

Take a look at our broad research areas, publications and current student projects and then email me ( if you're interested in joining the group or collaborating!
