Sharon Homer-Drummond, PhD
Tri-County Technical College
I have a Ph.D. in Integrative Biology from Florida Atlantic University, and an MS in Marine Biology and Marine Affairs and Policy from the University of Miami (it's all about the U!). I have done most of my research work with dolphins and other marine mammals (and earlier with cows!) looking at reproductive endocrinology (hormones that regulate reproduction), and reproductive environmental toxicology (pollutants and toxins that interfere with successful reproduction). More broadly, I'm interested in ecological health, human impacts to ecology, and the interconnectedness of human, animal and environmental health.
I have been teaching and mentoring undergraduate biology and biology students since 2002, and am currently the Course Director and Lead Instructor for Principles of Biology I and II (the freshman course sequence for biological science majors) at Tri-County Technical College. The majority of my students are in the Bridge to Clemson program, and are registered Clemson University students.
