Additional Information

As a Professor of Medicinal Chemistry, I am facile in all types of medications, drug interactions and adverse drug events. My interests extend to natural product chemistry and how these can be used as medicinal agents. My expert witness experience has dealt with the effects of opioid pain medication and antipsychotic/antianxiety drugs on a person's cognition and general functioning.
