Teaching (syllabi, etc.)

I primarily teach courses in human geography and on political economy and cultural politics in the Americas. In 2020, I received the “Extraordinary Merit in Teaching” award from the College of Arts & Sciences at the University of Wyoming, where I am an Associate Professor of Geography and International Studies in the School of Politics, Public Affairs, and International Studies.
I regularly teach the following courses:
  • Cultural Geography
  • Geography of Conflicts
  • Landscapes of the Americas
  • Political Geography
  • World Regional Geography
Before joining the faculty at University of Wyoming, from 2014-16, I was a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Geology and Geography at Ohio Wesleyan University, where I taught:
  • Cultural Geography
  • Geographies of the Global Economy
  • Feminist Geography
  • Latin American Geographies
  • The World’s Cities

Field trip with ‘Latin American Geographies’ at Ohio Wesleyan University, Fall 2014

In 2015-16, I also collaborated with Drs. John Krygier (Geography) and Jim Peoples (Anthropology) to coordinate learning opportunities (courses, lectures, and travel) as part of a year-long series of events, ‘The Place of Waste.’ More on one of our events here.

Before teaching at Ohio Wesleyan, I taught for more than five years while pursing my Ph.D. in the Department of Geography at Ohio State. I was employed as an instructor or as a teaching assistant for the following undergraduate courses:

  • Urban Geography
  • Social and Economic Geography
  • World Urbanization
  • The Making of the Modern World
  • World Regional Geography
