Biography

I received my Ph.D. from Florida State University and I am currently an Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs. My research interests vary, but I am currently focusing on higher education in Georgia, Global Crime and Justice, organizational administration and leadership, and terrorism. I was awarded a fellowship with the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies in summer 2013, and outstanding mentor awards for the college and the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences in 2015 and 2016.
