Faculty

At SVSU, we believe faculty can have the best of both worlds: being able to teach, have meaningful interaction with students, and the support to conduct and present research. Each month faculty work is published in the internal faculty/staff newsletter, the "Interior". See what's new:

September 2013

  • Geoffrey V. Carter, assistant professor of English, had a webtext titled “iPad Invention” published in Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology and Pedagogy. This effort is also the subject of a case study by Cheryl E. Ball for the November 2013 issue of Classroom Discourse titled “Multimodal Revision Techniques in Webtexts.”
  • Ann Coburn-Collins, director of academic programs support, was invited to lead two roundtable discussions titled “The Chair’s Role in Managing Part-time and Contingent Faculty” at the 2013 Department Chair Pre-Conference Workshops prior to the American Sociological Association’s Annual Meeting, Aug. 9 in New York City.
  • David S. Karpovich, H.H. Dow Chair of Chemistry, published a paper titled “Water Leaching of Chelated Pb Complexes from Post Phytoremediation Biomass” in Water, Air, & Soil Pollution.
  • Tai-Chi Lee , professor of computer science & information systems, presented a paper titled “A learning Model of Simple Computing Machine Architecture” at the 2013 International Conference on Frontiers in Education: Computer Science and Computer Engineering, July 22-25 in Las Vegas. Hector Zimmerman co-authored the article.
  • Rhett L. Mohler, assistant professor of geography, published a paper titled “Temporal Burn Scar Evolution in Tallgrass Prairie based on Field Spectroscopy” in the International Journal of Remote Sensing. Douglas G. Goodin co-authored the article.
  • Jay Scott, assistant professor of biology, recently published two papers: “The multifunctional Ca2+/ calmodulin-dependent kinase II δ (CaMKIIδ) regulates arteriogenesis in a mouse model of flow mediated remodeling” in PLOS ONE (Vol. 8, Issue 8); and “CaMKII is essential for the proasthmatic effects of oxidation” in Science Translational Medicine (Vol. 5, Issue 195).
  • Jim Sullivan, professor of English, was awarded a National Endowment for the Humanities grant—his seventh—to participate in the 2013 NEH Summer Institute’s “The Centrality of Translation to the Humanities: New Interdisciplinary Scholarship,” hosted by the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign. His proposed study, inspired by Zahnow Library’s recently-acquired James Joyce collection, explores the vicissitudes of Joyce’s Dubliners through its early Italian translations.
