|Biography:||I have been a faculty member in the Biomedical Engineering program at MSOE since 2006. A Milwaukee native, I earned my Bachelor's degree from the program in which I now teach, returning to Wisconsin after spending 9 years in Ohio and North Carolina. I thoroughly enjoy teaching the hard-working and talented students of MSOE, and I am involved in a number of efforts on campus to ensure that students succeed at MSOE.|
