Raised in the suburbs of Chicago, with a 2-year sabbatical centered around 2nd grade in the outskirts of Boston. I then went to KU (Lawrence) for my B.A. in Chemistry and moved up to Kansas City (KU Med Ctr) for my doctoral work in Experimental Pathology (mentor Janardan Reddy). I then moved to San Francisco (UCSF) for a postdoc in Experimental Pathology (mentor Ed Smuckler), followed by another postdoc at UC Davis in Environmental Toxicology (mentor Bruce Hammock). At that point, I assumed my initial faculty position at the University of Utah in the Center for Human Toxicology (CHT) with a Research Assistant Professor appointment in Pharmacology and Toxicology, and Assistant Director at CHT (mentor Douglas Rollins). I have been here ever since advancing in rank to Research Professor and Director of CHT. My main research interests evolve around development of LC-MS methods and employing those to explore drug-drug interactions.
Development of gas- and liquid-chromatography tandem mass spectrometric methods to determine concentrations of drugs and/or drug metabolites in biological samples. Employment of these methods to pursue research on drug-drug interactions of opioid medications, and to provide bioanalytical services to collaborators around the world.
