  作为布莱恩特珠海的新院长,我写这封信作一个自我介绍。对于将返回布莱恩特珠海美丽校园的二三年级学生(以及支持他们的父母),我的到来标志着学院领导的更替。对于那些今年入读布莱恩特珠海学院的新生 - 欢迎你们。

 

  布莱恩特珠海学院在学术院长David Lux的领导下成功开办了两年之后,我们期待着进入学院下一个阶段的发展。我代表个人感谢院长Lux的杰出贡献和为布莱恩特珠海奠定的坚实基础。我也要感谢布莱恩特大学RonMachtley校长为我提供了未来几年领导布莱恩特珠海院的机会。

 
  我很荣幸能够在这个令人兴奋的时刻加入布莱恩特大学,并期待着为你们在布莱恩特珠海学院的学习提供支持。作为一名学术界人士,我欣赏布莱恩特大学以学生为中心和创新的教育方式。我期待为你们将来成为成功的领导者和创新者创造机会。
 
  在职业生涯中,我担任过各种各样的学术和行政职务,相信这些经历会有助于我很好地履行布莱恩特珠海学院院长职务。行政领导方面,在接受现任职务任命之前,我曾任纽约州Buffalo市卡尼西斯学院商学院院长并兼任金融财务学教授。我还曾在爱达荷大学的商业与经济学院和中国宁波诺丁汉大学担任副院长。在我早期的职业生涯,我担任过佛罗里达墨西哥湾沿岸大学,南佛罗里达大学和扬斯敦州立大学的教授。我从康奈尔大学获得学士学位,从肯特州立大学获得金融和国际商务博士学位。
 
  我在中国有着丰富的生活和工作经验。2002年和2003年,我是富布莱特基金中国学者,在南京大学教授金融课程,并开展中国商务研究。作为富布莱特基金学者经历的一部分,我在中国各地的大学讲课,作为我在广州中山大学邀请讲座的一部分,我参观过珠海。在佛罗里达墨西哥湾沿岸大学,2005年我被任命为中国研究所创始主任。在这个职位上,我制定了与中国一些大学的交流协议,在校园内共同创办了一所非营利性的中文学校,并成为西南佛罗里达州华人协会的副主席。 2010年,我离开佛罗里达墨西哥湾沿岸大学,受聘担任中国宁波诺丁汉大学商学院(NUBS)副教授的职务。在那里,我很快被任命为学位课程的首任副院长。
 
  作为学者,我的研究兴趣和成就是广泛和多学科的。近年来,我的大部分学术成就都集中在与中国有关的课题上。我担任GeneralManagement期刊和Entrepreneurship in Emerging Economies 期刊的编委。我还担任其他学术期刊的推荐人,并共同撰写了一本关于在中国开展商务的书。
 
  我教学以学生为中心,并拥有各种不同教学方式的丰富教学经验。我教授过各种广泛的本科,研究生和管理人员教育课程。我有广泛的国际教学和公共演讲经验,包括我的中国富布莱特学者经验,哥本哈根商学院六个夏季国际暑期大学课。

 

  除了在中国的学术和专业经验外,我与中国也有着个人关联。我的妻子Jia在中国出生长大。我们在中国北方的唐山市有一个家,我们经常和我们15岁的儿子尼科(Nico)一起回家探访亲友。
 
  我期待着在未来的岁月为你们提供最好的教育体验。我计划在9月初抵达校园,并有机会在我们的迎新活动中与大家见面。祝大家好,我期待着未来的一年!

 

  谨上,
