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 health professions.

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.
