Selkirk College, Attn: David Feldman
301 Frank Beinder Way, Castlegar BC, V1N 4L3, Canada
I was born in Princeton, NJ and grew up in Berkeley, CA. I earned a bachelor's degree in mathematics from UC Berkeley in the early eighties. After that I studied linguistics at MIT and UCLA ultimately earning a master's degree from UCLA. During this period I also worked as a scientific programmer in a start-up speech-recognition firm.
I moved to Canada in 1990, worked at Camosun College in Victoria and then resumed my studies in mathematics at UVIC with an NSERC graduate scholarship. I earned an M.Sc and competed my course work and comprehensive exams towards a Ph.D.
In 1999, for family reasons, I came to the Kootenays and began working at Selkirk College. During my tenure at Selkirk, I have been a faculty member, have had numerous assignments related to educational governance, have served as the President of the Selkirk College Faculty Association, as School Chair of the School of University Arts and Sciences.
I currently have the honor of serving the college as one of its deans.
Outside of work, I love to play music with friends, to dance and to enjoy the wonderful wilderness near which we at the college are so lucky to be able to live and work!
