They were each instrumental in the choosingof my topic, as well as the writing and refining of my dissertation.

Beyond their professional help, I am also indebted to their kindness, patience, andsound advice over the last four years. I would also like to acknowledge and thank Dr. JanStets, who has done as much or more for my development as a working researcher andscientist as any other person during my time as a graduate student. I extend my deepest gratitude to you for all that you’ve done for me. Thank you.

I am on this journey in part due to your guidance and support.  iv DedicationsThis dissertation, as with everything I value in my life, is dedicated to my wife Preeta,my son Émile, and my father Brad. Without your love I would be lost.
