EducationI have an undergraduate and post graduate degree in biology:
B.A. (Biology) University of Delaware
Ph.D. (Biology) University of Miami.
ExperienceI developed a mentoring program that provided individualized mentoring to promising students who needed "topping up." This resulted in 23 undergraduates getting full scholarships to top universities (including the University of Missouri, University of Kansas, University of Minnesota, and others) for Masters and PhD programs. These were students who did abysmally on their first attempt at the GRE (for many English was not their first language). Extensive teaching experience in undergraduate and graduate level courses in biology. (including IUP, Chatham Univ., Penn Highlands Community College, Miami University of Ohio, University of Miami (Florida), and several overseas universities).
I am semi-retired now but miss teaching and interaction with keen students. Once I get behind a student, I make a great advocate and mentor.
I am a successful published author, including books for general audiences and over 50 peer-reviewed publications. I have also published a newspaper column and numerous short articles.
I make frequent public speaker, from university seminars to high school biology classes. I enjoy public speaking and have tutored students in public speaking with great success.
HobbiesI am a relaxed and laid-back person. I rarely get angry, and never with students making an effort.
I have built my career more around the lifestyle I enjoy than accruing wealth or prestige in academia, though in certain circles in academia I am highly respected.
I enjoy almost anything outdoors.
I have extensive experience working overseas in different cultures where I am the minority. I have deep respect for people of all backgrounds and try to incorporate what I can teach and offer to their needs and goals.
