I believe education is not simply teaching others a set of facts or a given subject, but rather an opportunity for me to share with others what I have learned through my own experiences. My approach to the classroom and teaching is to reinforce to my students that science is important to everyday life and that learning is a lifelong endeavor that does not end when they receive a degree. My research interests focus on blood pressure and chromatin-remodeling complexes which are enzymes that influence transcription of DNA.
