Job Description

I am currently using a robot developed with the Instrument Shop to safely study the transfer of microbes from carpet to skin-like surfaces to determine the best carpet type for pre-school locations.  I assisted in the renovation of the Textiles Teaching Laboratory this summer by determining space and power requirements of all instrumentation, choosing appropriate cabinetry, planning and executing the movement of equipment to and from storage, and supervising Physical Plant.  I assist Dr. Annis in her classes as needed.  I train graduate students on departmental equipment.

Non UGA Activities

I play percussion in the Athens Symphony, The Classic City Band, Polka Band, Athens Brass Choir and the 37th GA Regimental Band.

I play handbells and sing in the Central Presbyterian choirs.  For seven performances this summer I was Mother Abbess in "The Sound of Music" with Arts!Oglethorpe.
