Professor and Chair, English, College of Arts and Sciences

I have taught Core classes in the UAB English department for the past 18 years, and I have had the privilege of teaching—and learning from—students who come from all kinds of majors and who have all kinds of post-graduate hopes and dreams. I’m always fascinated by the many different ways they see the world. As a result, it’s a particular privilege to co-chair the redesign of UAB’s core curriculum. My goal is to create a stimulating and challenging intellectual experience for all of our students, one that will make them better critical thinkers, problem solvers, citizens, and leaders.

Training students to meet the complicated demands of the workforce is a true passion of mine. Early in my career as a chemical engineer, I was on the recruiting team traveling from university to university to hire the next generation of engineers for my organization. Now I hire recent graduates to work on research studies. A basic knowledge and skill set that spans across disciplines is critical for today’s graduates, and I firmly believe that it starts with the core curriculum. The innovative Signature Core developed by UAB will help students learn to develop problem solving skills they can apply to be engaged citizens and strong employees.
