Professor of Architecture and Design,
Associate Dean of Research in the School of Architecture
I teach a variety of courses that explore the history of architecture and design in the modern era. In particular, I am interested in political themes in architecture, the impact of new materials, and the evolution of exhibition design techniques, and I have always found the University to have the necessary financial and scholarly resources to support my research.
The quality of the students accepted at Notre Dame means that teaching remains stimulating; even after more than two decades here, it is still a pleasure to step into a classroom or studio and work with our students.
I have also long valued the strong sense of place and community that characterizes Notre Dame. Given my field of study, I appreciate that such an ideal is not a glib slogan or facile abstraction but an indelible attitude that pervades the campus.
