Curriculum Vitae (pdf)


I grew up in upstate New York and received a B.S. in Biochemistry (1985) and a M.A. in Biology (1989) from the SUNY- Binghamton. My master’s thesis focused on ultrastructure and cytochemistry of red algae. I received his Ph.D. in Biology at Florida State University (1995) exploring methods to create asymmetric hybrids between two tobacco species. In 1995 I joined The Ohio State University Wooster Campus as a post-doctoral researcher researching methods to improved soybean genetic engineering. In 1998 I joined the faculty of Plant Pathology department at Kansas State University and formed the KSU Plant Transformation Facility.
