I have had the privilege to make progressive contributions both in teaching and research, specifically in the area of nutrition, disease and metabolomics. In spite of the challenging economic environment, I have created a successful and sustainable research program, with substantial external funding, a respectable publication record and numerous presentations at local, national and international settings. This has been accomplished along with course and curriculum development,and considerable service at the departmental, university and community levels.
By educating, close mentoring, instilling enthusiasm and encouraging a team spirit, my team and I have enjoyed an active, diverse, fun and productive laboratory environment. I have successfully trained and graduated 8 PhD, 18 MS students, together with mentoring a host of undergraduate students who worked in my laboratory on directed research projects, honors thesis or to gain research experience.
In addition, we have been able to serve the community by hosting, training and perhaps inspiring (!) high school students over the summer semesters from various communities in Metro Detroit.
