University Distinguished Teaching Professor

Educators who impacted my life the most motivated me to realize my unique gifts and talents, and they supported me every step of the way. My goal is to pass this gift on to my students. I want my students to understand research design and statistics, of course; but, more importantly, I want my students to use the challenges and adversities of life to help open their minds and hearts so that they can excel and experience their own magnificence. In turn, they will be able to create a future in which we all benefit, a future in which we all share a set of common values and common responsibilities. And, in doing so, they will transform lives, not least their own.
