I am a Home Economist* who specializes in Textiles and Apparel. My teaching is focused on Textiles Science and History. My scholarship includes both research and creative aspects and is centered on craft education and sustainability. I am currently servingĀ  as the President of the International Federation for Home Economics (IFHE).

*Although Home Economics has been rebranded in the US as Family and Consumer Sciences, I work with colleagues around the world and chose to use the historical and international name for a vibrant discipline for clarity and philosophical reasons
