I am a current faculty member in the undergraduate Business and Technology Management program at NYU’s School of Engineering. I have pursued the intellectual life of what Nassim Nicholas Taleb called a flaneur in his book Antifragile. Grounded with background in political science and a doctorate in computer science, I am an acolyte of Jane Jacobs, especially her insights in the fields of development and social order. Adding in the spirit of my native Brooklyn with an appreciation for the operatic works of Wilhelm Richard Wagner, I constantly seek to use my wide-ranging and deep knowledge in program design and academic administration; I have developed curricula and lead learning with stellar evaluations at seven universities. With over 10 years experience at a Dean level , I am fully engaged with the university’s mission of nurturing and growing human capital.
