Visiting Assistant Professor of Biology
Dr. Godin is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Biology whose background is in both developmental toxicology and science education. Her graduate research focused on identifying the dysmorphology in a mouse model of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders. Additionally, she spent five years as a post-doctoral fellow in science education at Duke University. Her research at Duke focused on increasing student retention in STEM and STEM-related fields.
