BA Biology, University of California Santa Cruz 1989
Ph.D. Biology University of California Santa Cruz 1996
I began work at CSUMB in 1997 as a part time faculty with Earth Systems Science and Policy, an economics and policy infused environmental science degree program. During the intervening decades, that program and I have remade ourselves several times. I have been involved in general education since my first years on campus, and GE continues to be one of my primary interests. Most of my scholarship has been in assessment and I serve as CSUMB's Critical Thinking Assessment Coordinator. I am a Professor of Chemistry with the School of Natural Sciences, as well as Coordinator of First Year Seminar and Interim Director of General Education with University College.
