I joined the Wright State Department of Pharmacology & Toxicology in 2019, as I completed a career as a physician in the United States Air Force. I have practiced in both pediatrics and dermatology, having completed residencies in both specialties. For the past eight years I have been assigned to Wright Patterson Medical Center, an academic medical center integrated with the Wright State University School of Medicine and the Dayton VA Medical Center. In these years I have also served as a medical advisor for wound care research at the Air Force Research Lab and Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine. I am a co-investigator and sub-investigator in a number of clinical trials at the Wright State Pharmacology Translational Unit.
