Building on my background in virology and genetics, I have
devoted most of my career to teaching at both the undergraduate
and graduate levels. I currently teach an introductory biology
laboratory course and advise undergraduates interested in
careers in the biological sciences, medicine, and the allied
In addition, I direct the Genetic
Counseling Program and teach several graduate-level
courses in human and molecular genetics. My current research
interests are in the area of genetic counseling, with a
focus on the ethical, legal, and social policy issues arising
as a result of recent advances in human genetics.
