I am a teaching faculty member and for that reason do not have active research on going.  My involvement is with curriculum development and learning more effective ways to teach.  I am committed to being inclusive with my teaching style.  I am currently teaching two different writing courses.  With an extensive writing background, I hope to bring my experience to this important subject.  I had three decades of research experience prior to starting at Temple.  I use my years of research background to help with the courses I teach.  Though I do not teach Neuroscience, I have many years of research in that field and many papers to show for it.  Another part of my involvement is coordinating labs for the Cell and Molecular Biology 2112 and honors 2912.  I am very involved with developing new labs and optimizing existing ones.
