Bio

I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Biological Sciences and Psychology from Rutgers University-New Brunswick. As an undergraduate researcher, I performed physiological ecology field and lab studies on the Eastern Fence Lizard (Sceloporus undulatus). I performed research in Psychology on the early diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease in a Rat model using pharmacological means.

I received my Ph.D. from Cornell University-Weill Medical College in New York City where I performed research in Molecular Neurosciences in the Department of Pharmacology. I subsequently joined the Department of Neurology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine as a Postdoctoral fellow where I took part in Systems Biology, Bioinformatics and Viral Immunology research.

I collaborated at Mount Sinai in the Department of Psychiatry as an Adjunct Assistant Professor where I continued my studies on the Immune modulation of the Nervous system in Psychiatric diseases.

My research projects at City Tech involve collaborations between members of the Biology, Mechanical Engineering and Computer Engineering Technology. These studies focus on Urban Ecology and examine the interface of human populations and their effects on the local flora and fauna. This research particularly focuses on the invasive rodent pest species that are so abundant in our city.

Open Educational Resources: ARCH1121- History of World Architecture to 1900

Open Educational Resources: ARCH1121- History of World Architecture to 1900

This historical survey of architecture covers the period from early civilizations to the arrival of the Industrial Revolution. Architecture is understood as an expression of the culture and life of a society, and each class session considers architectures from around the world within their social, historical, and spatial contexts. While the history of Western architecture is covered from the Egyptian to the Enlightenment, a special focus is directed to the architectures of the Far East, South Asia, Africa, pre-Columbian Latin America, the Islamic World, and elsewhere to provide a comprehensive overview of the richness and diversity of architecture as a cultural artifact.
