Erik Arthun (cont.)

Most of the research he conducted centered around the physical and chemical tuber effects caused by varying levels of potato flower removal. The following year, he attended a number of classes at NDSU and finished a minor in Chemistry, while preparing toapply to a graduate program for the 2005-2006 school year. He also taught biology and chemistry as a substitute teacher in local junior high and high schools. He is looking forward to the teaching and research here at CSU, and would eventually like to become a college professor and continue researching in an academic environment. His areas of study interest include Parasitology and Immunology.

Erik likes to spend his summers and leisure time in south-central Montana near Red Lodge, where he grew up. He fills his time with flyfishing, hiking, backpacking, and skiing. He also enjoys listening to and making music in my spare time. He recently moved from Montana to Fort Collins with his girlfriend, Mallory, who started work as an R.N. at Poudre Valley Hospital. They really like the Fort Collins area and are excited to explore their new state!
