Personal profile

Area of Expertise

My research focuses on lower limb biomechanics with an emphasis on the etiology, diagnosis, and rehabilitation of syndesmotic ankle injuries. At UNTHSC, I serve as the course director for the MPAS 5401 (Physician Assistant) and DPHT 7400 (Physical Therapy) gross anatomy courses. I am also a lecturer and laboratory instructor for dissection-based anatomy courses for first-year medical and graduate students, and I mentor advanced medical and graduate students in elective dissection courses.
I am heavily involved with outreach programs supported by the Center for Anatomical Sciences, including the UNTHSC Anatomy Pre-Matriculation Workshop and directorship of the Texas Academy of Biomedical Sciences (TABS) Summer Bridge Program. These programs are designed to get K-12 and college students interested in science and medicine as future career choices by exposing them to the unique opportunities found in medical and/or graduate school.
