Biography

Research

As a geographer, I am interested in making linkages across disciplines. In biology and earth systems science, I draw from complexity, resilience theory, and disturbance ecology.  These fields come together in my physical geography scholarship, which spans traditional field and GIS-driven research in biogeomorphology to more conceptual-theoretical explorations of the organism-environment interaction. In the atmospheric sciences, my focus is on how humans modify weather and climate at the scale of cities, regions, and the units of observation drawn by forecasters.  I also have interest in aspects of animal geography, political ecology, and science-technology studies. I encourage graduate student to question their disciplinary boundaries and to critically examine how academics is constructed and maintained by certain practices, expectations, and social norms.
