I am an Associate Professor in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics and in Pediatrics and Human Development.  In the College of Osteopathic Medicine, I serve as the co-director of the DO/PhD program.  The broad theme of my research is common complex diseases.  The current objectives are to identify genetic factors that cause and contribute risk for orofacial clefting, and to measure and mitigate the impact of hearing loss using a community-based participatory approach in rural mid-Michigan.
