Jessica Kaufman started her career as a process engineering consultant in the food and pharmaceutical sectors. Her Ph.D. from Boston University focused on mechanical properties of viscoelastic biomaterials. Since joining Endicott College in 2008, she has taught a wide variety of courses in biology, biotechnology, bioinformatics, bioengineering, and physics. She is interested in mentoring undergraduate research projects in genomics, bioinformatics, and the mechanical testing of biomaterials.
