Academic Service

This is a partial list of my academic service over the years. Aside from my formal roles (some of them providing considerable service), I typically review about 50-70 papers per year. I also write about 40-70 letters of appraisal per year, ranging from tenure and faculty promotion applications, to award nominations, to grant applications, and to faculty job applications.
