I offer courses in Physical Geography, World Regional Geography, Advanced Regional Study in Latin America, and Water Resources. I am a broadly trained geographer and enjoy conducting research in both human and physical geography. My most recent research is a collaborative effort that focuses on obstacles to low income homeownership. I am also working on manuscripts dealing with women in physical geography, Jewish settlement in the American Southwest, and the perception of the environment on health. In recent years, I have used my GIS skills for a number of projects, including a summer stint working on databases in Mexico and creating the map for a history book on Native Americans. I thoroughly enjoy teaching and working with students and have been fortunate to assist with research in Urban Geography, Geographic Education, and Natural Hazards and Disasters.
