I accepted a tenure-track appointment as Assistant Professor of Management in the College of Business, effective September 1, 2000. I am now completing my second year as a visiting member of the RIT faculty.
I earned my Ph.D. in Business Political Economy (Public Affairs) at the Woodrow Wilson School of Government and Foreign Affairs, in association with the Darden Graduate School of Business Administration, University of Virginia, in 1998. My masters degree in public policy and administration also is from the University of Virginia, and I received my BA degree from Roanoke College. In 1985 I completed a three semester program in economics and politics at Oxford University, England, and I am a graduate of Georgetown University's Institute of Comparative Political and Economic Systems.
Before starting my doctoral studies, I had five years business experience in foreign exchange trading. I also have extensive consulting experience, with an emphasis on business and economic development projects. My research interests span a variety of international business topics. In addition to my RIT teaching, I have taught at the McIntire School of Commerce, University of Virginia, and at Virginia Commonwealth University.
