Short Bio

Raised on a rural Wisconsin farm, I studied chemistry and mathematics at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls where he was a Ronald E. McNair Scholar.  After graduation, I attended the University of Minnesota-Duluth and obtained my Master of Science degree in Mathematical Chemistry.  In Fall 2007, I joined Marquette University to pursue a Doctorate in Chemistry while studying structural biology and drug discovery using NMR techniques.  I served as a postdoctoral associate at Concordia University Wisconsin working on projects in structure-based drug design.

Currently, I teach biochemistry at Texas Wesleyan University as an assistant professor.  I am pursuing novel inhibitors for dihydrofolate reductase.
