Courses I Teach

  • ENVST 2100 - Intro to Environmental and Sustainability Studies
    The course will expose students to a diverse range of research viewpoints and approaches to studying issues surrounding the environment and sustainability.
  • GEOG 3200 - Geomorphology: Mountains, Rivers, Deserts
    This course explores Earth's surface systems to see how landforms are created and modified over time. These systems include mountain building, and erosion and deposition by rivers, glaciers, landslides, wind, and shoreline processes. Analysis of landforms and processes will be directed towards understanding how the surface of the Earth got to be the way it is, and how it is changing.
  • GEOG 5435/6435 - The Oceans and Us: Marine Environmental Issues
    The oceans cover more than two-thirds of our planet. Their resources help feed human populations, they facilitate global trade, and they help regulate global climate. Despite their importance to global systems, both human and natural, their role in the environmental health of the planet, global economies, and political conflict are often overlooked.This course will examine contemporary issues in marine geography, including topics such as human impacts on marine environments, ocean-climate dynamics, as well as political and economic impacts of rising sea levels and opening of previously ice-restricted trade routes.
