I am a broad earth scientist with training in geoscience education, geology, climate science, GIS, and earth systems modeling. My research interests are also interdisciplinary.

I love to learn about the earth, how to best teach about the earth, and new strategies to learn about Earth. I love to try new things and create new course content. I've been involved in various projects to develop new resources to support the teaching of college science courses.

I strive to create a welcoming learning environment for every type of student. My goal is to make learning about the environment exciting while also challenging students to meet their full potential.
