My professional work experience started with a position as a human engineering analyst at the Boeing Company in Seattle from 1972 to 1974. After completing my postdoctoral fellowship I joined the faculty of the Department of Biology at Eastern Washington University in 1983. I served as department chair from 1994 to 1997.
My research interest in exercise physiology comes from my personal interest in sports. I was very active in synchronized swimming for quite a number of years as a swimmer and coach. Today I'm an avid masters swimmer, and I also enjoy kayaking, skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, and cycling
