I came to Drexel in 1978, after teaching for three years at Texas Tech University. In addition to my classroom work, I have served Drexel as Chair of the Faculty Senate, Head of the Department of English & Philosophy, and as an Associate Dean in the College of Arts & Sciences. I was given the Harold J. Meyers Award for Outstanding Service to the University. My research interests include Joseph Conrad, the Modern novel and textual studies. In my spare time I am an enthusiastic amateur flutist.
