My goal as an educator is to ensure continued student motivation and success. I am interested in pedagogical research that focuses on innovations that drive student success. Aside from teaching, my basic science research is in bone physiology and the role that prenatal exposures play in postnatal development.

Research Summary/Interests

My basic research interest is in bone physiology. I take a biomedically-driven approach to skeletal biology that is founded within evolutionary theory. My central research question is whether or how prenatal exposures predispose an offspring to diseases of aging like osteoporosis.
