I joined the Biological Sciences Dept. at CSN in Fall 2005, where I currently teach Biology 189, Fundamentals of Life Science, Biology 196, Principles of Modern Biology I, and Biology 101, Biology for Nonmajors.
You can also access my teaching webpage for additional details about these courses during semesters.
B.S., Biology/Public Health, Utah State University 1993
Ph.D., Physiology, Southern Illinois University School of Medicine 1999
Most recently I've been collaborating with researchers at Northern Arizona University (NAU) on a project involving the piñon pine tree. The piñon/juniper woodlands of the southwest are under considerable pressure from human-induced climate change, with current projections predicting massive die-offs (further reading).
More information about the project on the research page.
