Brief Bio

My educational responsibilities earlier in my career were specific to data collection(s) for large NIH funded grants. I lived specifically on soft money while a faculty Research Scientist at Georgia Tech (Georgia Institute of Technology's Research Corporation, ATRP Program; Centers for Alternative Medicine, NIH- RO1 5 P30AT000609; National Institute of Aging, NIH -1R01- AG14767-0; and Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine in Neurodegenerative Disorders NIH - 1 R30 AT00610). After leaving Georgia Tech, I took a clinical teaching position at Tulane University where I integrated my years of data collection and research expertise into a teaching platform attempting to make biomedical research and technology a part of my classroom narrative. It was at Tulane that I began to earnestly try and weave quantitative and qualitative biomedical issues into daily teaching often to students coming from a minimal STEM background. Today, as an engineering professor and Biomedical Coordinator for the School of Engineering at the University of Mississippi, I continue to demonstrate and convince students of the applicability of their engineering skill set in numerous health and biomedical related fields.
