Interests

RESEARCH INTERESTS:

 

My primary research interest is lipid biochemistry as it relates to the physiology of animals. I have studied the physiology of salivary secretion in ticks, plus the lipid and fatty acid composition of mayflies and rodents. My interests include lipid metabolism in animals and how fatty acid compositions affect their physiology. I am also interested in the pathogenesis of disease-causing organisms and their relationship with host vectors. As a secondary research interest I examine ultrastructure of various organs and tissues from mammals to better understand the organism's biology. Former projects include the dorsal skin gland of the Texas Kangaroo Rat, and a continuing project in this area is the examination of tarsal glands of the mule deer and white-tailed deer.
