Current Position: Research fellow in Comparative Pathology and an Anatomic Pathology Resident at Harvard Medical School


Brief Biography

Carole grew up in Rochester, NY and received her undergraduate degree in Biology from Oberlin College in 2000. Her thesis work during her BA program studied the ecology of jack-in-the-pulpit, and she held various research positions studying topics ranging from foot and mouth disease to rattlesnake behavior. After graduation, she worked at Genencor International, a biotechnology company in the San Francisco area, for four years before deciding to pursue veterinary research training. Her career interests include pathology and emerging infectious diseases.

Outside of her research, she enjoys dance (salsa and belly), and yoga, and various outdoor activities such as backpacking and snowboarding.
