Education PhilosophyEdit

There are a few things people want to know:

  • Who we are
  • Where we come from
  • Where we are going
  • How to get there

We can make use of the tools of science to explore these issues as we work towards a coherent and unified understanding of the human condition. A good way to learn science topics is to start with the question about the world that most puzzles you. Wikiversity participants can be a guide to help a student take that first step on their personal journey of learning and then provide help as that journey continues on through the entire scope of human knowledge.

Research InterestsEdit

  • The role of synaptic adhesion proteins in learning and memory
  • The role of dis-regulated cell adhesion in cancer
  • Mathematical models of neuronal networks
