Research Description

My primary area of scholarship at JMU focuses on teaching pedagogy, specifically in human biology. I am interested in the best practices of teaching and learning and developing an interactive and engaging classroom. My teaching interests lie in the fields of anatomy and physiology, especially cardiovascular physiology. I have previously done research investigating gene expression patterns that regulate the development of the mammalian midface using a mouse mutant that displays the characteristics of frontonasal dysplasia.
