Exploring a church that was bombed out during the Sandinista Revolution in Nicaragua.

 As an Environmental Geographer, I am deeply passionate about learning and teaching.  While I teach a variety of courses, such as environmental issues, water resources, and biogeography, a recurring, if not central theme, to all my classes is how humans interact with and alter the natural environment.  My research interest focuses on landscape-wide environmental change.   It is the “big picture” of how nature works as a system rather than its individual elements.  Research projects have ranged from Alaska and Oregon studying glaciers and wetlands to Tibet investigating deforestation and flooding to Siberia examining the effects of mega-dams on rivers.
