My research program includes both education and genetics specific research. My education research interests include student knowledge transfer (what concepts students retain from year to year and/or what techniques can be used to better transfer) and overall curriculum development/alignment. I am a trained geneticist and focus on genetic variations and small-noncoding RNAs associated with disease in production animals.
