Short Bio

Dr. Klausner enjoys exercise with weights, aerobics, and yoga. He reads motivational books to help him be a better teacher and to inspire his students. When he's home in New York City, he is involved with New York Cares, where he tutors homeless children. If he weren't a professor, he would want to work where he could be of service to others: a counselor, a clinical psychologist, or even sales -- "anything that would allow me to share my ideas with other people and interact with the public."
