My research interests include annual and seasonal precipitation trends, climate change, El Nino Southern Oscillation, severe weather, natural hazards, and biogeography. Currently, I am assessing learning outcomes in the DL science labs with the traditional in-class environment. My teaching interests include physical geography, climatology, statistics, and biogeomorphology.
