Teaching and Research Interests

Geologic Disasters, Geoscience Education, GIS

My main role in the Geology Program is as a lecturer for introductory geology courses, specifically Geologic Disasters.  In this role, I devote my time to integrating the latest disasters into the course curriculum, finding new ways to excite students about geology, and helping inspire students to appreciate the natural world around them.  Each spring, I provide GIS support for Advanced Field Geology (GLG440) where we use iPads to produce digital geologic maps and collect and analyze data in the field.  I also support Geology Program faculty to incorporate GIS throughout the Geology curriculum.  In addition to teaching, I work as a GIS specialist for research projects, such as geologic map compilations and plate tectonic reconstructions.
