- Education: I received my B.Sc. in Entomology and Plant Pathology, as well as my B.Sc. (Honors) and M.S. degrees in Plant Virology from The University of Natal in South Africa.
- I then moved to the USA where I obtained my Ph.D. in Entomology from The Ohio State University.
- My research interests are understanding the ecology of vector-borne diseases, forensic entomology, and general ecology.
- Additional Information: I am also the Director of the HSI STEM Grant at ENMU.
- One challenge I experienced in college: I succumbed to peer-pressure and did not seek tutoring for a key pre-requisite course.
- This almost resulted in my failing that class and would have significantly affected my ability to remain at university.
- I also wish I had taken more mathematics and statistics as an undergraduate
- I am a Greyhound Connection Mentor because I enjoy helping students connect with their educational and career paths.
