Heather uses the silicon photonic microring resonator platform to develop multiplexed cytokine based assays for clinical diagnostics. Currently, she is developing an assay to detect cytokines/chemokines relevant to accurately diagnosing reactivatable latent tuberculosis infection.
When not in lab, Heather enjoys playing with her puppy Nymeria, cheering on THE Ohio State Buckeyes, explaining what THE stands for, and exploring the flat state of Illinois on foot and bike.
