Personal Information: I have been teaching at Centre College since 1989. In addition to teaching introductory courses in Biology and Biochemistry/Molecular Biology, my special areas of teaching are microbiology, molecular genetics and virology. My Master's and Ph.D degrees are in plant pathology, and my research focuses on the physiological and biochemical interactions between pathogenic fungi and the plants that they attack, and the screening of bacterial enzyme-binding chemicals for antibacterial activity (find out more about this project by clicking here).
