My office is Laurentide 2241, my Spring 2020 student office hours are 12:30pm-1:30pm Mondays and Wednesdays and 1:50pm-2:50pm Tuesdays and Thursdays. Students that need to make an appointment outside those times may do so at this appointment setting page.  Yes, my office has both Packers and Broncos stuff in it. Here's why. I've also traveled to 5 continents, 16 countries (or maybe 15 or 17 depending on your interpretations of Falkland sovereignty and the Antarctic Treaty), and 38 US states (plus a district and a territory), as well as some land that's not part of any country.

Current research:
