About Me

Research Interests

My primary research interests involve trends in medical education.  Currently, this includes the implementation of active learning and engagement strategies in physiology coursework in the pre-clerkship medical student curriculum.

Additional research interests include the relationship of calcium signaling in striated muscle with regards to development, disease, and sex-based differences in function.
