Heffernan's Curriculum Vitae

This CV is best read on line.  Click on the publications link on the left to get to the "meat"of my CV.  That page is the one I try to keep updated.  If you want a paper copy of my CV, on October 2018 I copied the stuff from these web pages into this 41 page printable word doc.  Warning: This word doc will quickly go out of date.
