Professional Interests:

My passion is teaching in higher education while simultaneously conducting research in academia.

Teaching Interests/Research:

My research stream focuses on organizational behavior, influence tactics, and management education.  These subject areas allow me to present cutting-edge research in my classroom.  Teaching in the MAODC program at HPU is a privilege on many levels.  First, the diversity of our student body adds an eclectic mix of perspectives and experiences to our class discussions.  In my opinion, this dynamic is not duplicated anywhere else in the Pacific Rim.  Second, the faculty in the MAODC program also come from diverse backgrounds. Our faculty presents our curriculum from both the academic and practitioner-oriented viewpoints which allow students to gain the best from both worlds.  Finally, our focus on project-based learning gives our students opportunities to work with local businesses and solve real issues facing those organizations. Our students practice what they will be doing in the consulting field.
