Why Duke?
I initially visited Duke in 1990 to interview for an AB Duke Scholarship, and fell in love with the school at first sight. After four wonderful years, I left Duke to embark on my graduate education. As I was finishing my PhD in 2001, I had the great fortune of being offered the opportunity to return to Duke, this time on the faculty. It is a joy to have been here ever since, and the highlight for me is the privilege of working with amazing students.
