Administration

My primary responsibilities as Director of the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory include the oversight of day-to-day operations of the Lab. I set policies and procedures consistent with AAVLD accreditation requirements, establish vision and leadership for the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory, recruit faculty and staff, provide opportunities for faculty and staff growth and development, and prepare and manage budgets in consultation with the Dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine and the Head of Diagnostic Medicine and Pathobiology. I also serve on the Dean’s Administrative Council for the College of Veterinary Medicine.

My interests broadly include the implementation of rapid diagnostic technologies for animal disease diagnosis, animal health surveillance, biosecurity and food safety. Concurrent with interests in rapid diagnostics is the interest to disseminate data, results and information to constituents via cutting-edge technology that will affect real-time decision making.
