Background

Biography

I teach primarily Ecampus courses with a focus on human anatomy and physiology.

Education

   • PhD, Exercise and Sports Science, Oregon State University, 2020.
   • M.S., Exercise and Sports Science, Oregon State University, 2015.
   • B.S., Exercise and Sports Science, Oregon State University, 2008.

Research

My research is in human performance as it relates to endurance sport, specifically triathlon. My focus is on the metabolic thresholds and how they relate to endurance training and fuel utilization. Future research will also include online education.

Teaching

I developed and teach the online human anatomy and physiology series. In 2022, I won the Ecampus Innovation Award for my work in developing this series. It includes high quality video, 3D multimedia and interactive lab simulations.

Courses Taught

   • Bi245 – Principles of Human Anatomy and Physiology I. Explores the fundamental concepts of biology as they apply to human anatomy and physiology and examines the structures, functions, and regulatory mechanisms involved in the skeletal, muscular and integumentary systems.
   • Bi255 – Principles of Human Anatomy and Physiology II. Explores the structures, functions and regulatory mechanisms involved in the nervous, endocrine and reproductive systems.
   • Bi265 – Principles of Human Anatomy and Physiology III. Explores the structures, functions, and regulatory mechanisms involved in the cardiovascular, respiratory, urinary and digestive systems.
   • Bi319 – Theory, Practice and Discourse in the Life Sciences. The practice of science and the critical evaluation of scientific claims are explored though writings, discussions and presentations. Topics including the scientific method, ethics and the role of science in society are examined along with implications for professionals ranging from health care to environmental biology. Strategies for effectively communicating science with diverse audiences are emphasized. Writing Intensive Course.

Awards

   • Ecampus Innovation Award, Oregon State University, 2022.
