How to Find Me

My building, Pharmacy/Biology, is the green copper patina building attached to the back of Torrey Life Science.


Follow Eagleville road a few blocks to the next light where you will make a left. Follow the signs to park at the North Parking Garage. I'm just a few buildings back the way you came in the Biology/Pharmacy building, up Auditorium Drive from the parking garage.

Once in the Building

Go through main entrance with open windowed atrium, up central open-air stairs to 2nd floor. Turn toward the closed double doors (not toward the library). Doors are open during the day and not alarmed as signs might suggest. My lab (rooms 211 and 213) will be on the left if you need to find me in there. If you are going to my office, go through hallway of labs to next set of double doors. Pass the elevator, go to the end of the hall and turn right down a short hallway. My office is 200A and is on the right.
