I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Mary Washington. My undergraduate background is in Philosophy and Religious Studies and I have continued these interests in my career as a geographer. I am primarily a Cultural Geographer and specialize in the study of the Geography of Religion. I also conduct research in the area of food geography, interactions between nature and society, and explorations of geographic theory and methodology.
I teach a variety of classes in the Geography department at UMW including World Regional Geography, Introduction to Quantitative Methods, Environment and Society, Introduction to Human Geography, Sacred Spaces, and a First Year Seminar on the Geography of Religion. I always welcome undergraduate students who wish to work with me on my research projects or develop their own independent studies.
