Why teach at NYIT?
Because of NYIT's dynamic, growth-oriented environment. I particularly enjoy teaching the diverse student body. I also look forward to visiting NYIT's global campuses to teach and collaborate on research.
Cross-cultural management, international human relations, and global and strategic leadership.
For several years I worked in various organizations and countries, interacting with people from diverse cultural backgrounds. I became fascinated with the cross-cultural context of human behavior. A few years ago, I decided to retool myself and transition to academia to explore and contribute to the field of cross-cultural management. My Ph.D. program at New Mexico State University (NMSU) reinforced my love for research and teaching.
My research in the field of organizational behavior and human resource management has appeared in several journals and I've presented it at prominent conferences in the United States and Europe. At NMSU, I received awards for outstanding research and teaching. Currently I'm working on projects on cross-cultural issues and global leadership development. Read about my publications.

To excel in teaching and research and be an engaged, productive member of the NYIT community. I consider teaching an opportunity to inspire and empower. As a teacher, it is my goal to enhance student learning as a transformative experience. Learning is a complex process that is individual as well as content and context specific. I'm always on the lookout for effective ways to stimulate and sustain the intellectual growth of my students.
