It's an honor to serve as Dean of the Roy H. Park School of Communications -- especially since I'm an alumna (TV-Radio 1974). After completing my Master's and Ph.D. degrees at the University of Maryland, I returned to Ithaca to teach in 1979.
My particular areas of expertise and research are:
- managing corporate learning and communication functions as business assets
- new technologies, particularly mobile devices used for training, communications, and performance support
- the new workforce demographics, and how this will impact organizational recruiting, communication, job design, and training
- innovation in higher education
In addition to my work at the College, I have been active in consulting with organizations to help them assess and adopt new methods of communication and training through my firm Gayeski Analytics. Among my clients are the US Navy Fleet and Family Readiness Training Branch, General Electric, TAP Pharmaceuticals, MetLife, the US Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, and Tompkins Financial.
