BiographyWith an academic career spanning institutions in the United States and on five continents, I have enjoyed contributing to projects focusing on educational program design, implementation and evaluation for universities, ministries, and private and government agencies. I have traveled extensively on both short- and long-term assignments in over 30 countries worldwide.
