I am the lab manager and research specialist for the AVS image analysis lab in the Department of Animal and Veterinary Sciences at Clemson University. I obtained my Ph.D. from Clemson in Animal and Veterinary Sciences and my B.S. from the University of South Carolina Upstate in Biology. Prior to my appointment at Clemson, I held positions as a graduate teaching & research assistant, laboratory animal technician, and biological science technician at Clemson, the Medical University of South Carolina, and the USDA ARS, respectively.
In my current role, I develop and test repeatability for standardized operating procedure image analysis manuals for radiographic, computed tomographic, and magnetic resonance imaging data. I additionally provide training for the use of the AVS Image Analysis Lab equipment and image acquisition and analysis support services as requested.
