Clinical Associate Professor, Nursing
Assistant Professor, Public Health

I obtained my Doctorate degree in Epidemiology from the University of Arizona Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health in 2004. My research focus is on sleep, sleep disordered breathing, obesity, asthma, emphysema, bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and infectious diseases.

My philosophy in teaching is to give students all the necessary tools for them to be able to learn and apply their new knowledge so that students may perform their own evaluations. At the same time, students should be able to apply critical thinking, perform independent studies, and interpret their results.
