Faculty Perspective

For me, teaching has been the most rewarding work experience of my career. I appreciate the opportunity to effectively share the knowledge I have acquired with motivated students, and to continue to learn myself. That is what drove me to complete my Ph.D. twenty years after completing my M.S. Professional experience in both technology support and the administration of a large technology organization bring an applied perspective to my teaching. Research and teaching go hand in hand, because the research issues of today become the classroom topics of tomorrow. I look forward to the opportunity to pursue my research interests here at UD, working closely with and learning from both faculty and students.
