Teaching:
I mainly teach two classes in the Department of Geography while performing my duties as director of the Earth Science Program, GEOG 307 - 'Landform Processes and Morphology' and GEOG 511 - 'Fluvial Geomorphology and Field Methods'. I also occassionally teach GEOG 201 - 'The Physical Environment

I strive to provide students with 'hands-on' learning experiences, and in physical geography that means field trips!

Course Descriptions:
