During my career, I have been able to combine my interest in education with my passion for laboratory work. I have moved from training at the bench level to teaching at the University. I am interested in developing critical thinking skills in my students which are essential in today's high complexity laboratories. I hope to continue developing those skills in my students here at UMB.
