    My research and teaching interests cover a wide scope of the geography discipline. While working towards a doctorate, I focused on the geomorphic agency of mud-nesting swallows in central Texas, contributing to a relatively new field of zoogeomorphology.  In recent years, I have greatly enjoyed working with students on research projects spanning a variety of local topics: summer heat climatology, tornado trends, rural skateboard parks, and the distribution of a variety of southeastern U.S. bamboo species.  Currently, my interests center on climate variability and weather forecasting in the inland Pacific Northwest.

    At Eastern, I teach courses in physical geography, world geography, oceanography, meteorology, weather forecasting, and disasters.  I love my job and am always up for discussing the nature of the universe with friends, colleagues, and students!
