My teaching interests are in the areas of environmental hazards, disaster planning, community participation, and research methods. My pedagogical approach centers on imparting technical and theoretical knowledge, while supporting different modes of student learning. In my teaching I aim to bring my research and professional experiences to the classroom in an effort to encourage students to build strong relationships with the larger world around them.
