Ashley Ross is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry. She is a bioanalytical chemist with expertise in electrochemistry, microfluidics, neurochemistry, and ex vivo experimentation. After obtaining her BS in Chemistry at Christopher Newport University in 2009, she went on to receive her PhD in Analytical Chemistry at the University of Virginia under Dr. Jill Venton in 2014. During her PhD, she focused on developing electrochemical methods to detect rapid adenosine changes in the brain. She worked as a post-doctoral scholar under Dr. Rebecaa Pompano at the University of Virginia from 2014 until 2017 developing microfluidic methods to study local stimulation and diffusion within the lymph node. There she was awarded the American Association of Immunologists Careers in Immunology Fellowship for her work focused on developing methods to probe brain-immune interactions. She joined the University of Cincinnati faculty in 2017, with research interests focused on developing methods to probe brain-immune communications and methods for quantifying neurotransmitter signaling between the brain and immune system.
