I am the manager of the centrifuge facility at Wright-Patterson. We conduct research on human volunteers in the high-sustained acceleration environment. I continue to conduct my own research. I am interested in spatial disorientation and the effects of multi-axis acceleration.

Anthony Richard Arment, '95
Area of Concentration: Molecular Biology and Biochemistry
Mentor: Wayne Carmichael
Employed: Central State University
Email

I graduated from WSU in 1995, then left for UW-Madison where I completed three post-docs from 1996-2000. While there I also taught as adjunct faculty at Alverno College in Milwaukee. In 2000, I accepted a fulltime teaching post at SAPC, a small, liberal arts college that focuses intensely on interdisciplinarity. My broad background and devotion to this type of education helped me get this position and has advanced me quickly. Part of that is due to the education I received within the BMS Program.

I married in 1994. My wife has been appointed Director of Financial Aid at SAPC. We have no children.

Update 2003: Anthony Arment is teaching at Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio.
