I studied biology at Antioch College in Ohio and after earning a Bachelor of Science in 1987, I worked in industry for 3 years before deciding to return to academia. I then earned a Master degree (1994) and a Doctorate degree (1997) while working in the laboratory of Judith Kimble at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. During this time I studied Notch signal transduction in the nematode C.elegans. I then moved to Germany to work as a post-doc in the laboratory of Nüsslein-Volhard at the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology. Here I switched focus to the analysis of musculoskeletal development using zebrafish as a model organism. I moved to Sheffield in 2002 as a lecturer in the department of Biomedical Science. In 2004 I became a member of the MRC Centre for Developmental and Biomedical Genetics and in 2009 I joined the Mellanby Centre for Bone Research.

Besides research and teaching, I am passionate about gardening and grow a large range of shrubs, perennial flowers, fruit and vegetables.  However, above all I enjoy being with my two kids, Oskar and Mathilda.
