I came to Shippensbsurg University’s Department of Geography-Earth Science in 2005, just after completing my PhD in Geography at the University of Maryland. My research interests include ecological effects of land use change (and landscape change in general), land use change modeling, spatial analysis and GIS, biogeography, and urban geography. Currently, I am the the Director of the Center for Land Use and Sustainability and lead investigator for the Delaware River Basin Project.
On a regular basis, I teach Geo 101: World Geography, Ess 108: Conservation of Natural Resources, Geo 244: Land Use, Geo 322: Urban Geography, and Geo 533: Science of Land Use Change.
