Perseverance is a great element of success. If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody.”   Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


This quote represents a major philosophy that I hold dear. The projects and information on these pages represent the efforts of someone who persevered. Take time to learn about me, about my students and projects, and about opportunities that are available.  If you are interested in talking to me about research opportunities in graduate education, please contact me at mfc@purdue.edu or 765-496-3461.  
 Thank you for visiting, and check often to see what is going on in my professional life.
