Research Interests
My primary professional activity outside the classroom involves the creation of set and/or lighting design for theatrical productions. Over the course of my career, I have designed over 100 productions in the academic and professional theatre, both in the United States and abroad. In addition to my design work, I have an interest in Filipino Theatre, developed during a Fulbright Fellowship to the Philippines in 1997-1998. I also have done research in the works of the South African playwright Athol Fugard and the translation of Shakespeare’s plays to film.
