I was born in Mexico City, and I’ve been living in the United States since 1990. I am an assistant professor in the Communication Studies Department at SUNY Oswego. I did my Ed.D. at Teachers College, Columbia University, in the Communication, Computing and Technology in Education program. Previously, I was Director of Learning Systems Design at eCornell, where I was the principal architect behind the company’s approach to online learning systems design and production, Learning Molecules (download a white paper here). My wife is Asma Barlas, Director of the Center for the Study of Culture, Race and Ethnicity at Ithaca College and a leading scholar in Qur’anic hermeneutics.
