The following is a list of my publications, in case you are interested in reading some of my more formally published work. All of these items were produced as part of my Day Job as a faculty member at UAlbany. Some of it is freely available online but the stuff that isn’t can be requested through your local library (or, you know, purchased elsewhere if you’re into that sort of thing).
