I am a developmental neurobiologist interested generally by the ways organisms develop and specifically by the ways the nervous system forms. That a single cell, the fertilized egg, has all the information and resources necessary to coordinate the development of complex and varied multicellular organisms is an endlessly fascinating question with important implications for basic research, stem cells, and clinical research. I am very fortunate to be able to teach classes about my favorite subjects in both biology and neuroscience to a steady stream of talented and engaged Davidson students.
