|Why TSAS?||I chose to teach at TSAS for purely selfish reasons: I get to work with a great group of colleagues, teach what I love, and collaborate with students in their learning process. I love that my job now allows me to read great books and research fascinating topics.|
|Interesting Fact||I grew up on an island off the coast of Venezuela and lived in Central and South America for 13 years. I have traveled to five of the seven continents and hope one day to make it to Australia as well (but not Antarctica because I don’t deal too well with the cold).|
