    Professional Interests and Activities

    Clinical microbiology, particularly diagnostic bacteriology, is my area of professional interest. I maintain a position as a clinical microbiologist at Holy Cross Hospital. In the Department of Biology, I teach courses in general and pathogenic microbiology. Academic advising and coordinating teaching assistants' assignments are among the administrative responsibilities of the Assistant to the Chairman. As the Premedical Coordinator I am responsible for organization and oversight of the premedical advising program, and I chair the Premedical Advisory Committee which conducts interviews of our senior students as part of their application process to medical school.
