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!

Teaching philosophy

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