Associate Director, Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management
My professional focus is marketing and retailing. The Food Industry Management Program that I direct conducts research and extends the results of that research to the food industry and public beyond. The FIMP offers a dozen executive education programs each year customized for both individuals and companies. I am the Associate Director of the Dyson School and for 20 years have served as the Director of the Undergraduate Business Program, the largest undergraduate major at Cornell.
