About Me

Over these many years I have seen technology play an increasingly larger role in the teaching of A&P. Whenever possible I have tried to integrate as much multimedia as possible in the presentation of this extremely important subject. This has coincided with the increasingly challenging learning styles of today's students.

As an instructor I feel it is important to understand the best possible way to present the complex topic of human physiology to students with a wide range of abilities and interests.

Research Interests

My research interests include the pathology of bacteria, diagnostic bacteriology, pathology of protozoan parasites, electron and light microscopy, and human anatoMy and physiology.
