I am currently an Associate Professor of Physiology at the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine in Lewisburg, WV. I have been a faculty member at WVSOM since 2007, and was introduced to TBL in 2008. I have developed several TBL modules for our integrated curriculum at WVSOM and have a particular interest in emphasizing the role of biomedical science in clinical decision making. I am part of the TBL review committee at WVSOM which provides input regarding the implementation of TBL across the preclinical curriculum and provides feedback to individual faculty regarding design of TBL modules. I currently teach respiratory physiology, renal physiology and the physiology of excitable tissues. I have a research lab that investigates the biochemical basis of susceptibility to ventricular fibrillation during myocardial ischemia.
