Stephanie Teeter, B.S., M.Ed.
Stephanie serves as a research technician and lab manager for TORL, as well as other labs in the biomedical engineering department. Her research focuses primarily on the biology side of biomedical engineering and she has an especially strong background in tissue culture and bench techniques such as biochemistry assays. Additionally, she keeps the lab running smoothly and safety-violation free. In her “free time” she is pursuing a doctorate in in science education, also at NC State. Her research lies at the intersection of informal science education and science communication, and she hopes to support scientists’ public engagement efforts. In her actual free time, Stephanie enjoys crossword puzzles, being outside, weight lifting, and spending time with friends. Additionally, Stephanie wants it to be known that if the lab competitions were based on important things like trivia, rather than petty things like hand-eye coordination, she’d be crushing it.
