My service duties consists of diagnostic pathology services to the KSU Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory, providing diagnostic services to submitting veterinarians from within and outside of the state of Kansas. Additionally, necropsy and biopsy services are provided to the KSU Veterinary Hospital. Incorporated within the postmortem services are teaching responsibilities to fourth year veterinary students as part of a diagnostic medicine course where students are instructed on necropsy techniques, gross tissue evaluation, specimen collection techniques, and etiologic diagnoses.


My research interests are abomasal bloat in ruminants, adenoviral infections in ruminants, and investigation of spontaneous infectious diseases of diagnostic cases.
