Professional profile

Rowland began her career as a research scientist in the field of developmental neurobiology and is excited to expand to teaching at Lynn University. She has many years of laboratory experience that she is eager to share with the science department. Her favorite model organism, Drosophila (the fruitfly) has also made the journey here to become a basis for teaching science - genetics and behavior and so many more things can be studied with the help of the little fruitfly!

Education

B.S., Florida Atlantic University
Ph.D., Florida Atlantic University

Teaching philosophy

Her teaching philosophy is one of promoting question-based research, encouraging enthusiasm for the sciences, and helping connect to non-scientific disciplines.

Areas of scholarship

Rowland received her PhD in 2012 from Florida Atlantic University here in Boca Raton she studied the mechanisms of a set of growth genes on the development of the central nervous system of the fruitfly. She received an NSF predoctoral teaching fellowship in 2010, where she discovered an interest in teaching as well as doing research. After graduation, she spent two years as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Miami studying mechanisms of neurodegeneration in the larval fruitfly.
