Kathy joined the Kenyon faculty in 2000 after a post-doctoral position at Yale University analyzing the membrane targeting of G protein subunits using yeast as a model system. She is interested in many areas of biology but has a particular affinity for cell biology, molecular biology and cell signaling. In her spare time she enjoys bird-watching and attending Kenyon sporting events.
