Professional Summary

I am an Assistant Professor- Annual Adjunct in the Department of Geography & GIS (College of A&S). My primary research interest is adopting an interdisciplinary approach--consisting of archaeology, environmental studies, and remote sensing--to understanding human-environment relations and the evolution of urban landscapes.

My current work focuses on the study of household-scale, sustainable water management practices in subtropical regions.
