So to say ‘it’s been a while’ is a bit of an understatement. Life has evolved considerably since the birth of my second child and in fantastic ways. I’m almost ready for a full year review. But in the meantime a few teaser updates. I was tapped by the Provost last year to lead a […]

A year in review 2011-2012

As the academic year comes to a close, here’s a quick overview of key moments in 2011-2012. I’m lucky, I have great colleagues, great students and great support.
