GMU Transfer Students (BS in Biology)

If you are thinking of transferring to GMU for biology, then you should take zoology, botany, biostatistics, chem 111 and 112, and cell bio at NOVA. This will minimize your loss of credits when you transfer.


Welcome to my website


I have been a Biology Professor at the Northern Virginia Community College, Alexandria Campus since Fall 2004.

Prior to that I worked at the USDA-ARS research station in Salinas, CA as an agricultural scientist, specifically looking at bacterial diseases on broccoli and its relatives.  I taught a Botany Course at Hartnell College while doing my research, and that experience lured me back into the classroom.

This is my educational background:

PHD Plant Pathology, University of California, Davis

BS Plant Science, Penn State University

AS Environmental Science, Simon’s Rock College
