Professor of Biology
As a young student in college, I was interested in birds and inheritance patterns. I thought I could combine these interests by studying forest genetics. After I got my Ph.D., conditions were not favorable in forest genetics. I was invited to accept a postodctoral fellowship in microbial genetics at a medical school. I accepted and shifted in the direction of medical microbiology. After completing two postdoctoral fellowships in microbiology, I was hired in the Biology Department at Stetson in part because of my diverse background. I have taught many different Biology classes in the many years I have been at Stetson and I have initiated several courses, such as Ornithology, Immunology-Hematology and Molecular Biology. My research has been concentrated in nucleic acid biochemistry of plants and microorganisms. I also have been able to follow my passion with birds in a most favorable area of the US, namely Florida.
