I am an Associate Professor of Biochemistry at Winona State University. I study protein kinase regulation using kinetics, fluorescence spectroscopy, site-directed mutagenesis, and other methods. I develop new and engaging labs and course-based undergraduate research experiences (CUREs) in biochemistry and general chemistry. I also develop exercises in chemistry that introduce students to generative AI.
