Biography 

I worked at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville Florida from 1997 to 2003 looking into the effects of mutations in the MAPT gene and how they might influence microtubule function, protein aggregation and how they influence alternative splicing of the MAPT to alter the ratio of protein isoforms of the Tau protein in neurons of the CNS. My doctoral thesis was based on this work.

From 2003 - 2013 i worked as a Research Fellow, then a Staff Scientist at the Banner Sun Health Research Institute, investigating the underlying causes of Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease. 

I have been an Adjunct Faculty member at EMCC from 2014 - present.

Academic Interests 
The confluence of Genetics, Epigenetics and Molecular Biology pertaining to, but not limited to, Neurodegenerative diseases.
College Service 
From 2015 - present I have been pursuing research with Undergraduate students, initially looking to genotype bird species and more recently to identify plant species within the Tres Rios State Park, using s technique of DNA Barcoding.
