I am a biochemist with a broad knowledge of biochemistry, molecular pharmacology, and neuroscience. I have been committed to teaching, research, and service at the college, graduate, and national levels for more than 15 years, having taught at colleges and universities in New York City and North Carolina and receiving recognition as a member of several National Institute of Health studies.
I consider myself a strategic thinker and relationship builder with wide interests and varied talents including gene expression analysis, mobility shift DNA-binding assays, DNA manipulation and plasmid construction, DNA and RNA purification, protein purification and characterization, enzyme assay development, and immunocytochemistry.
I teach CHE 261-Introductory Biochemistry, a new offering in the chemistry department for fall of 2013.
