Aurelie Vandenbeuch, PhD

Research Assistant Professor

Department of Otolaryngology Research Division

Dr. Vandenbeuch​ received her PhD from University of Paris, Denis Diderot in 2006. She completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Colorado State University (2006-2009) and at the University of Colorado Denver (2009-2011). In January 2011, she was appointed Instructor in the Department of Otolaryngology. Since 2018, she is a research assistant professor in the department.
