Chair, Department of Biological Sciences
Welcome to my web site. Contained on these pages is information about me, the courses I teach, and the research I pursue with my students.
My laboratory conducts research on the effects of heavy metals such as copper and iron on the physiology of the nervous system and the effects of these metals upon behavior. More information is provided in the Research section of the web site.
I teach courses in Animal and Human Physiology as well as Introductory Zoology. I've also been known to teach graduate seminars on neuroscience and toxicology. More information is provided in the Courses section of the web site.
I am also director of the HSU Undergraduate Research and Mentoring Program in the Biological Sciences (URM Program). More information on the URM Program can be found on the Program's web site. A link to the URM Program's web site is provided to the left.
