Professor of Radiology
Section Chief of Radiology
LSU School of Veterinary Medicine

What was your previous position and where?

I am originally from Florida, but my previous position was at the University of Bern in Switzerland, where I was an associate professor in diagnostic imaging.

What brought you to LSU?

I was recruited by LSU to head the diagnostic imaging service.

What is your research interest?

My research interests include gastrointestinal and vascular imaging.

What do you hope to accomplish at LSU?

My dream for LSU is to have a nationally and internationally recognized diagnostic imaging program where others will truly hope to be able to work and train.

What do you enjoy most about LSU?

LSU is the most enjoyable place to work that I have ever experienced, due mainly to the overwhelming collegiality of the doctors and students that I get to interact with every day. Everyone has a similar goal in mind — helping animals get better and working together to do it. I feel that every day!

What are your major accomplishments?

My accomplishments include creating a world class imaging section with the most modern equipment, especially the acquisition of the MRI unit, and starting a training program for interns and residents in diagnostic imaging.
