Through his collaborations with researchers from the fields of science and engineering, he enables and contributes to technological innovation. His description of Isabella’s Dream:
Isabella’s Dream is an interdisciplinary performance work that addresses issues of place, identity, displacement, and belonging in a unique contemporary manner. The cast of performers, all students from a range of disciplines at UC Davis, offer their personal narratives to link the historic events of 1492 to today. In doing so, their actions raise questions concerning the human urge to discover, to adventure, and subsequently to colonize, take a hold of, and/or occupy various new territories, physical, psychological, and otherwise.
