Description of current position:

Graduate Experience:

“My time at the University of Maine was invaluable. I benefited from challenging academic courses, the opportunity to conduct and publish original research, teaching in the public school system as a National Science Foundation fellow, close counsel and advisement from department faculty, and lasting friendships with other students. I think fondly of my graduate experience and would recommend the program to others.”
