Jennifer earned her Ph.D. in Genetics at North Carolina State University and conducted post-doctoral research in pulmonary pathobiology at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and CIIT Centers for Health Research, both in Research Triangle Park, NC.

Dr. Tina Hill

Madison, WI Chapter (formerly Beta Chapter)

Tina R. Hill received her Ph.D. in the geosciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her research in the nanogeoscience lab in the Geoscience Department utilized high-resolution transmission electron microscopy to characterize the crystallography and properties of minerals and their interfaces at the nanoscale in igneous and ultrahigh-pressure metamorphic rocks. Her M.S. in mineralogy is also from the University of Wisconsin-Madison Geoscience department. She is currently a Lecturer in Mineralogy at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and adjunct faculty in the physical sciences at Madison College.  Tina is committed to the mission of GWIS and has served at many levels.  She is excited to contribute to the stewardship of an organization that awards thousands of dollars in research fellowships every year and helps to support all women in science in a variety of ways.

Dr. Melissa Mullen Davis

Chapter-at-Large (formerly Omega Chapter)


 Melissa grew up in Northern New Jersey and attended Colby College in Maine, earning her B.A. in Chemistry and Spanish. She received her Ph.D. in Chemistry from Penn State University in 2011 where she studied RNA folding and RNA-metal ion interactions. She then spent three years as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute investigating mechanisms of transcription. Currently, Melissa is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the College of Wooster in Wooster, OH. Her current research focuses on regulation of gene expression as a response to environmental stress. She enjoys traveling, running, reading, and exploring Cleveland with her husband and her dog.
