Department: Science, Veterinary Technology

Dr. Stephanie Dorosko teaches both Science and Veterinary Technology courses, including Zoology, Animal Nutrition, Animal Anatomy and Physiology, and Animal Behavoir.

Stephanie earned both a doctor of veterinary medicine (DVM) degree and a Ph.D. in nutritional biochemistry and metabolism at Tufts University – a clinical degree and a research degree, as she describes them.

Stephanie worked part-time as a veterinarian while working on her doctorate, which involved public health and the breastmilk transmission of HIV from mother to child. She has published a number of articles in scientific journals such as Journal of Virology and Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences.

Stephanie did post-doctoral work at Dartmouth Medical School as an assistant research professor before coming to teach at Vermont Tech. While teaching full-time, Stephanie is also a veterinarian at a clinic on the weekends and in the summer.

Stephanie says she enjoys getting students excited about learning, as well as guiding them through the transitional process from students to adults who have to balance work and life. Stephanie is an adviser to 28 students and in 2016 she earned the “Carolyn Donahue Friend of Equal Opportunity Education Award” from the Vermont Educational Opportunity Association. It honors a person who helps low-income students, first-generation students or students with disabilities succeed in college.

Matt Gallagher

Phone: (802) 879-8207
Department: Electrical/Electromechanical Engineering Technology, Computer Engineering Technology

Matt Gallagher has been teaching in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at Vermont Tech since 2003.  His concentration is in embedded engineering systems that use microcontrollers, programmable logic devices and sensors.  His teaching style is heavy upfront on a class learning the subject matter together in a formal way, then allowing students to pursue their individual interests in self directed projects. 

"Projects allow students to connect the dots themselves and mimic more closely what will be asked of them when they leave here and get paid to learn, ie. when they go to work."

Prior to coming to Vermont Tech he worked for ten years at IBM Microelectroncis in CMOS and bipolar technology development and in foundry application engineering.  While there he began teaching a class on semiconductor processing which led to his desire to shift career paths.  His graduate work was in the area of non-linear fiber optics at Dartmouth College which he continued for a year at Ericsson Business Networks as a visting research scientist.

Outside of work his interests are running, biking, swimming, nordic and alpine skiing.  He's a persistent guitar player and reads any book that comes recommended by trusted sources.
