Personal Information

My wife, Carie, and I have two young children, Ellie (now 10) and Milo (now 8).  We are finishing our eleventh year in Upland and enjoy the opportunity to live near campus, interacting with students outside of the classroom.

Research Interests

  • Developing methods for analyzing physiological markers in blood, urine, and tissue in collaboration with biologists and exercise scientists
  • Plant Pathogenesis: studying the interaction between pathogenic polygalactronases and plant defense polygalacturonase inhibitor proteins
  • Method development of novel techniques for studying the Structure-Function relationship of proteins
  • Creating and optimizing computational models of protein

 Professional Associations

  • Member of the American Chemical Society
  • Indiana Academy of Science
