This website is mainly thanks to many questions that students asked during their visits to my office over the years.  “Where are you from?, what did you do before coming to Xavier?, what upper level courses do you teach?, what research do you do?, how can I find a summer research program?, what do you do when not in school?” are some.  While responding to those questions I also hope that the visitors will participate by sharing their ideas, readings and experiences related to what is on this website so that we all can learn together.  Thank you for visiting.
