Welcome! As a Ph.D. candidate, I am looking at the ways in which technology has affected society and how higher education might adapt. Particularly, I am interested in small institutions, the work of Erich Jantsch, and applying systems and futures thinking. I also work as an instructional designer at a Jesuit institution. This is my personal site.
