I've always enjoyed the process of teaching and mentoring so I'm glad to have settled in at Wheaton College in the Biology Department. I teach a variety of courses including introductory biology, advanced cell and developmental biology, anatomy and physiology, and several neuroscience courses. Learn more about my approach to teaching and mentoring.
In terms of research, I am interested in how to protect the brain from the deleterious effects of stress and in the evaluation of programs that aim to improve health through behavioral changes. Learn more.
My wife and I moved to Wheaton from San Diego, CA. While in SoCal, we lived in one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the city, with multi-million dollar homes less than six blocks away from extreme poverty. Through a variety of progams that I've labeled "The Pipeline" students can get involved in public health issues in San Diego. Learn more.
