I’m a Geographer, specializing in biogeography, spatial statistics, Geographic Information Science, and dendrochronology. I am an assistant professor of Geography at Eastern Washington University and I enjoy teaching classes related to the physical environment, tree-ring science, climate change, natural hazards, and experimental methods.

I am an avid outdoors person, and I love being in the woods. However, I feel equally at ease in a coffee shop working on my dissertation, planning lectures, orĀ  playing around with R code.

My favorite place to be is really anywhere with family and friends, but there is a place in the Old City of Philadelphia called Elfreth’s Alley that’s particularly cool. If you have a chance, check it out.
