I joined the faculty of UW-Baraboo/Sauk County after I completed my dissertation at Idaho State University in spring '09. While at ISU, I investigated the biomechanics of neck motion in softshelled turtles. Additionally, I worked with students of Anatomy and Physiology to understand their learning processes and the learning challenges that students in A&P face.
My research interests include lapping behavior in dogs, the natural history of the biota of the Upper Midwest (particularly the Driftless Region), ecology and conservation of reptiles and amphibians.
I enjoy working with horses & horseback riding, hiking, playing guitar and paddling.
Advice for students: 1) Find out what you want to do and then make the time to do it. 2) Take the time it takes to get something done.
