Although I have moved around the country while my wife Holly was completing her training as a veterinary cardiologist, I always found interesting science to explore.  I am happy to use these diverse experiences to teach students!

In graduate school, I studied a human enzyme, DNase II.  After that, I’ve spent longer or shorter times studying cardiovascular proteomics, tumor-causing viruses in chickens, rodent viruses, fruitfly development, crustacean limb regeneration and molting, and finally, prions in yeast.  Most recently, I’ve been developing a new area of research:  microbial genomics.

It’s been an exciting journey and it has given me the opportunity to really broaden my experience in teaching and research.  Now at UNH-Manchester the future is wide openwho knows where the science will take us next!
