What you will do and learn in my courses
The joy of Geography and Social Sciences is the ability to connect and engage with one's surrounding environment. In my courses I enjoy creating experiences that foster a sense of community, that are interactive, and connect to real-world issues. I want students to walk away from a course having the opportunity to have explored the material and can take enough away from the course where they can use the information to engage their knowledge and become a stronger student and person.

Currently, I am working on turning my dissertation on the Mercator Projection into a series of journal articles. Since the eighteenth century, the Mercator Projection has dominanted western European and United States world maps. My research explores why and how this happened by examining science exploartions, voyages of discovery and geopolitics of western Europe.
