Professional Activities

I enjoy teaching offshore into universities within the People's Republic of China, and have done so since 2006. I find that this opportunity has given me insight and experience into the very foundational differences in the way eastern and western educational institutions operate.

I also supervise several RHD candidates, enjoying their perspective on the way they approach research and what that research might reveal.
