Peer-reviewed Publications

As many members of the general public are often unaware, I want to first clarify that we as university scientists do not receive payment for our publications. In fact, we typically review work of other scientists for free, and then pay a substantial charge to publish our work. Because of this, I attempt to make all of our peer-reviewed work freely available, so please do not pay readership fees to access our work. Given that, I have included the PDF documents of our publications that you can download here. If this does not work, please contact me and I will work to get you a copy of the article!
