Caiti Smukowski Heil, PhD
Asst. Professor, NC State University
Prior to my gig as a new Assistant Professor at NC State, I was a PhD student at Duke University with Mohamed Noor and a postdoc at the University of Washington with Maitreya Dunham. Outside of the lab, you can find me hanging out with my family and my cats, Monkey & Business. I like listening to podcasts, sampling from local breweries, and exploring the great outdoors.
