Research

Research Statement

I find I am curious by nature, so exploring the world around me comes with ease, and I often seek out others to explore new ideas.  

As all of us in the academic community understand, there is always more to discover.  We must continually be experimenting and challenging established ideas and processes.  It is our shared responsibility to promote knowledge through publication and presentation to advance scholarship, science and the arts.
