Work History 
Assistant Professor of Pharmacology (September 2005)
Loma Linda University School of Medicine
We are currently engaged in research to determine the role oxidative stress and related signaling pathways play in mediating the anticancer activity of aryl hydrocarbon receptor agonists such as 2-(4-Amino-3methylphenyl)-5-fluorobenzothiazole (5F 203).  In particular, we evaluate interactions between redox signaling and the AhR signaling pathways which are essential to the ability of 5F 203 to induce DNA damage and apoptosis.  I also teach lectures to graduate and medical students covering topics such as drug metabolism, pharmacogenetics, cancer pharmacology and toxicology.

Assistant Professor of Medicinal Chemistry (July 2004 - August 2005)
Loma Linda University School of Pharmacy
I contributed lectures to a team-taught course in Medicinal Chemistry to second and third year students in the School of Pharmacy.  I served on committees both in the school of pharmacy and university-wide and began to implement a research program.

Postdoctoral fellow (August 1999 - June 2004)
National Cancer Institute at Frederick
During this fellowship program I had the opportunity to evaluate the metabolism of potential anticancer agents and make initial determination on their molecular mechanism of action primarily using in vitro systems.  I engaged in designing and implementing these studies as well as making presentations.  Lastly, I published work describing these studies.  In addition, I attended workshops and seminars covering a variety of topics to foster my development as a research investigator.
