Scholarly Interests/Research Topics

I am a geographer who has teaching and research interests in weather-societal interactions and critical physical geography. This interdisciplinary research examines issues surrounding human-land-atmosphere interactions and works to untangle their complex, critical relationships.

Given the breadth of subjects found under the umbrella of geography, I enjoy teaching a wide range of courses from climate change to understanding human cognition and environmental perception through film.
