Information for media

For most media inquiries (as well as for publicity material such as photos), please contact Stuart Wolpert ( from the UCLA office of media relations.    For my contact details, see this page.

Due to many other duties, I am declining almost all interviews at this time (this includes newspaper, magazine, book, television, web site, or film interviews).  However, you may still contact Stuart for alternative arrangements.

Various details about myself can be found in my curriculum vitae.
