IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Inside CU's new faculty profile series
Our faculty are a source of great pride. From rocket science to classic architecture, from the art of dance to the art of creating a successful business plan, our faculty bring a whole world of expertise, experimentation and excellence to our students and our community. In our new series, Inside CU will introduce readers to instructors, professors and research associates who contribute to our learning environment.
Each month we'll profile a different faculty member with a three question, Q&A-style interview. If you know of someone who you would like to see featured, or if you would like to participate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with full name, title, department, office phone number and/or CU-Boulder email address.
Please include a short paragraph about your background and a jpeg photograph.
