My administrative responsibilities include directing a Texas regulatory agency and ISO 17025 accredited laboratory; managing the agency’s budget and infrastructure; and overseeing faculty and staff. My academic responsibilities include providing thought leadership to the global community in regulatory science through teaching, research, and outreach.
