I am THe Assistant Dean of Sciences and A Professor of biology at Keene State College (KSC)…
In addition, I served for three years as Chair of the Biology Department at KSC. I conduct research in the area of plant evolutionary biology, and am a recipient of multiple research grants from the National Science Foundation. I collaborate with scientists from international and national institutes of higher education and serve as an editor and reviewer for publications in my area of scientific expertise. I am committed to helping faculty and students pursue excellence in the fields of science and currently lead a multifaceted STEM retention initiative for KSC.
When I am not working in my role as Assistant Dean, teaching or doing laboratory and field work, I enjoy skiing and hiking with my spouse. I also play the guitar and built my own OO-12 fret at the Whetstone School of Lutherie in the summer of 2012. I take breaks from the long NH winters by traveling to the tropics as much as I can (for work and pleasure).
That is me in a nutshell. Enjoy exploring my website.
