I went to college at Duke University (North Carolina) and to graduate school at Northwestern University (Illinois). Thereafter, I resided in the beautiful city of San Francisco, where I enjoyed the temperate climate as well as the rich cultural atmosphere. UCSF itself was an exciting place; although there were no undergraduates, there were thousands of researchers working at the cutting edge of the biomedical and health sciences. At this point, I am enjoying my position as assistant professor of psychology at Rochester Institute of Technology (New York).
I recently found out that I started a tradition. I make lists, so I made a list of things to do during my last couple of weeks at Northwestern in 1999. One was to get a Ph.D. As it happened, the list was maintained to 2003 and supplemented by each successive psychology Ph.D. in the lab. So here it is: "The Ph.D. Board--A Photo Memoir!"
