My teaching reflects a commitment to building relationships both within and beyond the classroom. Drawing on the complimentary links between my research and teaching, I encourage students to build active connections between course material and their everyday lives in the world around them. In the classroom, I draw from a range of disciplines, including geography, history, political economy, and ethnic studies. I teach geography not as an object of analysis but as an approach to understanding the world that connects various disciplines, methodologies, and topics.
I have a wide range of teaching experience, including courses in Human Geography, Cultural Geography, Latin American Studies, Environment & Society, and Global Environmental Change. I am also engaged in public forms of scholarship, and I value opportunities to extend my teaching beyond the traditional classroom.
