I came to UMB as an Assistant Professor of Chemistry in the Fall of 2001. My research interests revolve around biological mass spectrometry. My primary teaching responsibilities are Analytical 1 (CHEM 311) and Analytical Instrumentation (CHEM(361). Prior to this current position I received post-doctoral training at the NIH, Laboratory of Neurotoxicology under the direction of Dr. Sanford Markey. I have had prior teaching appointments at Arkansas Tech University and Dickinson College. I received my Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry from the University of Delaware under the direction of Dr. Burnaby Munson in 1998, and my B.S in Chemistry at the University of Pittsburgh in 1992.
