Peer-Reviewed Publications

The following list contains my formal publications; a PDF version is available for most of them. On a personal note...A few years ago I reached a publishing milestone of sorts that I set for myself around the turn of the century as a response to a bit of turbulence in my career at that time. I was fortunate to receive some guidance and advice from a number of colleagues as I was trying to find my footing, but one person in particular was especially influential. This esteemed colleague told me about his "50 by 50" goal - that is, to publish 50 papers by the time he was 50 years old. Makes some sort of sense, I thought, so I set myself a goal of "100 by 100" and somehow achieved this - a happy and somewhat surprising event for a variety of reasons. Through all the rough patches, I've learned a few things like the importance of moving forward, peers who take a moment to provide a bit of encouragement when it is most needed, and working closely with good friends (why not enjoy the journey?). Anyway, the papers are listed below - let me know if you have trouble accessing any of them.
