    PhD, Chemistry, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA, 1991

    Research Post-doc, Beckman Research Institute of the City of Hope, Duarte, CA

    Other experience: I have been in academia for the past nineteen years serving primarily as a chemistry faculty member while at 2-year institutions (most recently located in Kalispell, Montana for 17-years and the others located in Wisconsin). I have served as both division chair and/or department chair during that time while initiating an active undergraduate research program. I have been the lead PI on two successful National Science Foundation grants.

    Joined Carson-Newman in 2011

    I teach organic, biochemistry, general chemistry with the associated lab courses and have put an emphasis on leading undergraduate research. My research area involves biological mass spectrometry- a field that has greatly magnified over the past twenty years and since my work as a member of one of biological mass spectrometry’s pioneering research groups out of the University of Virginia. I am currently working on developing a new tool for structural biology that involves fast covalent labeling (or “painting”) biological molecules followed by mass spectrometry analysis. Imagine spray-painting a crumpled piece of paper, and then unfolding it and analyzing the pattern of paint… in many cases you can discern how the paper was folded. We are employing a similar strategy to study how biological molecules fold, misfold, bind to targets, and/or change shape.

    My wife along and our seven children are in the process of relocating our home base from Montana (near Glacier National Park) to Eastern Tennessee. We enjoy camping, hiking, and serving the Lord together as we are able. I am an avid fly fisherman and have even split my own cane to construct a few custom flyrods as a hobby. We were active members of our church back in Montana (Easthaven Baptist Church) and are in the process of locating a church home in Tennessee.
