Overview

Summary:

I am a member of the Center for Environmental Health Sciences where I examine the links between environmental exposures and obesity/type 2 diabetes.

Education:

  • Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.), Pharmacology/Toxicology, University of Mississippi Medical Center, 2007
  • Bachelor of Science (B.S.), Microbiology, Mississippi State University, 2000

Research interests:

Research in my lab centers around delineating the relationship between exposure to various pesticides and increased metabolic dysfunction which is associated with obesity and type 2 diabetes. Additionally, we are interested in determining if these exposures promote disease sequelae such as impaired wound healing in the diabetic disease state. To this end, we currently utilize both in vitro and in vivo models of type 2 diabetes and the major organ systems which are effected.
