Research Synopsis

I do not maintain an active research laboratory and do not accept PhD students.

I continue to serve as a thesis mentor for MS in Biomedical Sciences (MBS) students. I am also an active participant in graduate education through my service on thesis committees and qualifying examination committees. My major area of research interest focused on male reproductive physiology and steroid hormone action.
