I received a doctor in pharmacy degree from the University of Clermont-Ferrand (France) in 1984 and a MS in molecular pharmacology from Albert Einstein College of Medicine, NY in 1986. I graduated from Albert Einstein College of Medicine with a Ph.D. in molecular pharmacology in 1991.

Courses Taught

I currently teach Principles of Biology I and II including laboratory, as well as Human Anatomy and Physiology I and II and laboratory.
