I love a challenge, which is why I love the study of DNA. At FIU, I direct research in DNA profiling of non-human organisms including animals, plants, microbial communities and even hallucinogenic mushrooms. In my career, I’ve had the opportunity to undertake some of the most unique and bizarre DNA cases you can imagine. This […]

I’m a physicist with expertise on electromagnetic production of quarks — especially strange quarks, exotic forms of matter and physics at the limits of the standard model. I was drawn to this field by the challenges and the opportunities. We literally try to explain what the universe is and how it works! At FIU, I […]
