EDUCATION AND PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

  • Faculty member, University of Miami, 1972-present
  • Postdoctoral Fellowshiop, 197-01972, Laboratory Quantitative Biology, University of Miami
  • Ph.D., Plant Biological Chemistry, University of Georgia
  • B.S. Botany, 1965, University of Georgia

I have served as a technical swim official to the National Governing Body of Swimming in the United States, U.S.A. Swimming and to the NCAA , where I have been the referee for over 25 National Championships, 4 U.S. Olympic Festivals, and 4 Olympic Trials. I Worked as a technical swim official on the pool deck at the 1988 Seoul Olympics, the 1994 Rome World Championships, the 1995 Pan Pacific Championships, the 1995, 1999, & 2003 Pan Am Games, the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games, the 1998 Goodwill Games, and as head referee for the Women's NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships since 1997.


AREAS OF FOCUS

  • Tropical Biology
  • Cell and Molecular Biology

RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research interests include the study of the developmental changes that occur in the biochemistry and physiology of germinating plant root cells ; the molecular profiles of DNA, RNA and protein during root cell germination ; the role of transport ATPase enzymes in the adaptation of gill tissue to varying haline aquatic environments ; and the role of intracellular compartment kinetics in the ionic balance of mangroves to varying haline environments.


TEACHING INTERESTS

  • Freshman biology for majors, Cell and Molecular Biology, Developmental Physiology and Biochemistry.
