I grew up in Dickinson, ND. I got my BS in Biology from UND, and then a Ph.D. in developmental biology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I have been at UJ ever since. I am married and have three children.

My Favorite Course

It’s hard to pick a favorite class—I like them all. Perhaps Evolution, or Pseudoscience and the Paranormal, because they are diverse and cover such a wide range of topics.

Awards and Grants

I have been named Professor of the Year twice and earned the young alumni mentor medallion once.

Professional Affiliations and Memberships

I am a member of AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science) and an associate member of CSI (Committee for Skeptical Investigation).
