I have used my background in mathematics and English to pioneer several innovative programs in the English and Philosophy Department at Drexel University. With support at various times from F.I.P.S.E. NSF and others, I have championed interdisciplinary approaches to Humanities in Engineering, computers in composition, and multi-modal projects in English Literature courses, such as the senior level Literature of the Holocausts.
