Brief Bio:
I'm currently a professor in the management department, and interim assistant dean of graduate programs. I was born / evolved via the differential survival of my ancestors, because of themselves, to teach MGT-601.

I have also served as an expert witness and statistician in federal court cases involving discrimination and adverse impact analysis.

I am benignly indifferent about faculty profiles.

I often don't finish what I st

Teaching Areas:
I usually teach in the business college classrooms-- 1st or 2nd floor. I really hate BU-216. It's creepy; there's no air flow, and I think it harbors unpleasant bacteria.
