Her pharmaceutical career with Cubist and Merck started in 2014 following completion of an NIH Postdoctoral Fellowship at Harvard University, focusing on asymmetric catalysis. Pam completed her Ph.D. in synthetic organic chemistry at Caltech in 2011, where she studied the exploitation of reactive aryne intermediates in natural product synthesis. In 2005, Pam received her B.S. in chemistry from NYU, where she also studied Latin. A native of Brooklyn, New York, Pam currently works in Puerto Rico and remotely from her home in Natick, Massachusetts, which she shares with her husband, Chris. In her free time, Pam enjoys landscape photography, knitting and sewing, cooking and baking, cross-country skiing, and traveling with her husband.
