I am a toxicologist for Battelle Memorial Institute where I study high toxicity chemicals. I earned a BS and MS in Toxicology from Ashland University and Wright State University, respectively, and a PhD in Biomedical Sciences from Wright State University. Previously, I was a contract researcher for Air Force Research Laboratories and the Navel Medical Research Unit, both at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. I have also done toxicology risk assessment for Kao USA, drug discovery research for Procter & Gamble, and perinatal toxicology research at the US Environmental Protection Agency.

I teach online classes for the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology including Introduction to Cell Biology and a Journal Club focused on Pharmacogenomics.

My recent publications include the following.
