I teach and direct a small, undergraduate research group at Middle Georgia State College (Cochran campus). I learned about OpenWetWare from The Scientist eln (electronic lab notebook) review article, and I've joined to record our original research in an open format, and to introduce lab class students to electronic notebooks and open science.

Research interests

  1. Osmolyte effects on biochemical interactions
  2. Introducing students to the research process
  3. Pre-biotic evolution and artificial cells (hopeful future direction)
