Why I Teach

It is a joy and privilege to share knowledge with those seeking further education. My duty is to help students learn how to apply useful and significant methods of research, evaluate evidence and use moral reasoning theory to become better citizens of the world.

Through their Capstone project, the history of society’s problems comes alive for them, and they become expert witnesses to the past and the present. I tap into my years of experience in industry and public policy to help students prepare, and understand, academic work that fulfills the critical needs our leaders have for credible research.
