obtained my BA in Biological Sciences from the California State University-Fullerton
in 1996. Immediately after graduating with my BA, I continued my education
by going to the University of Missouri-Columbia (MU). I graduated with my
Ph.D in Biological Sciences (with an emphasis in Neurophysiology) in May
of 2001. My thesis work on neural plasticity of the central nerve pathways
that regulate feeding behavior in Aplysia californica produced one co-author
publication and four first author publications. These studies involved examining
functional neural regeneration of central nerve pathways that elicit fictive
feeding by using single cell electrophysiology. During my studies on regeneration,
I discovered that the feeding system of Aplysia also underwent a plasticity
that is reminiscent of short-term memory.
I am currently teaching full-time at Cypress College (Anatomy & Physiology Associate Professor). I teach Human Anatomy, Human Anatomy & Phyiology, and Integrated Medical Science, and Human Physiology.
