I am a broadly-trained geologist interested in past climates and environments. I primarily use sediments and landforms deposited by glaciers and ice sheets during the Quaternary Period (the last 2.5 million years) as tools to reconstruct paleo-environments.
In the classroom, I strive to make connections between past and future climate change, and am enthusiastic about taking students in the field so that they may never look at landscapes the same again.
At Oberlin I teach courses in Applied GIS, Natural Hazards, Earth Surface Processes, and Glaciers and Climate Change.
