Judith’s research focuses on the integration between cellular mechanical properties and mitochondrial function, both of which are altered in various disease states. She enjoys using a diverse array of tools, such as atomic force microscopy, fluorescence microscopy, and computer programming in the course of her work. Prior to beginning her Ph.D. research at the University of Pennsylvania, Judith received a B.A. in Biochemistry and Judaic Studies at Yeshiva University in New York in 2010. After defending her Ph.D. thesis, Judith is hoping to pursue a career in either regulatory affairs or scientific communication. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, traveling, cooking and spending time with family and friends. She lives in Philadelphia with her husband, Ben, and her wonderful 1-year-old son, Ezra.
