I am a geologist who has team-taught a wide range of interdisciplinary courses with artists, social scientists, humanities faculty, and other scientists over the past 30 years at Evergreen. My teaching interests include hydrology, aqueous chemistry of natural waters, GIS, environmental geology, climate change, and geochronology of sedimentary rocks. I rotated into academic administration for about 10 years and have a passion for landscape photography.
Ph.D., Geology, Dartmouth College, 1990; M.S., Geology, Dartmouth College, 1987; B.A., Geology and Biology, Whitman College, 1983.
I tend to emphasize applied learning in my programs. I always include field trips that link to the theory covered. I value both data collection in the field and lab analysis. Most of the topics that I teach are linked to social issues including land use, resource management, and ecological impacts.
