His interests center on innovative teaching methods in biology, especially the use of computers in biology education. He received his BS in Biology from Seton Hall University and his Ph.D. in Ecology from Rutgers University, and taught at Texas A&M before coming to Clemson in 1984. He has been an ABLE member since 1989, and chaired the Host Committee for the 2000 ABLE meeting at Clemson. ©2002 Clemson University Reprinted From: Kosinski, B. 2002.
