If you’re citing me:

First, thanks! I’m glad my work is relevant to something you’re interested in. Second, in case you’re wondering about how to refer to me:

Name:
Although Currie is a family name, it’s my middle name, not part of my surname. So in author–date format, my dissertation would be cited as Hall (2007) and alphabetized under H in the bibliography.
Pronouns:
I’m generally referred to with he/him/his, but gender-neutral singular they/them/their also works.
