I teach an elective on the history of veterinary medicine in the fall semester.  In the spring semester, I am the course coordinator for AP 747, Veterinary Physiology II, a 6-hour course in systemic physiology which includes the function of the cardiovascular, respiratory, endocrine, renal, digestive and reproductive systems of domestic animals with emphasis on physiologic control mechanisms, interrelationships of body systems, and criteria for evaluating animal health.  My research and scholarly interests are in cardiopulmonary physiology, exercise physiology, and the history of veterinary medicine.
