SELECTED RESEARCH PUBLICATIONS


Keeping up with my publications has become a bit of chore.  However, there are two (2) NET locations that now allow academic research and publications to be easily accessed as well as provide CLOUD space to upload PDF copies for people to utilize.  For an idea of my research publications and direction, please go to:

ResearchGate

or

Academia.edu

You may have to register an account (but it's free) and you can search through a slowly evolving database for national and international researchers.  Have fun!
