PERSONAL STATEMENT:

I’ve been involved in the field of relationship testing for over 40 years. Initially, as a physician/pathologist, I became knowledgeable in blood group genetics. Subsequently I learned technical details about serum protein, red cell enzyme, HLA and various kinds of DNA tests, but in order to improve my understanding of relationship test problems and their resolutions, I returned to graduate school, and received a Master’s degree in Human Genetics.

As a result, I’ve have made a number of scientific contributions to the field. My experience in examining thousands of cases has provided insight into the complexity of relationship testing. Aside from medical issues, I have enjoyed dealing with exceptional cases that have presented social, ethical, legal, immigration, biologic and statistical questions. I have been asked to teach what I have learned at a number of universities, conferences and scientific meetings. I find that my work in this field is both intellectually stimulating and rewarding.
