Dissertation Title: Mapping and modeling glacial Lake Algonquin in northern Michigan and western Ontario with models of uncertainty.

Current vibe: I’m a professional geographer and work in a collegial department at Shippensburg University. I was hired in 2004, was tenured and promoted to Associate Professor in 2009, and earned my first sabbatical leave in 2011. Ship is primarily a teaching institution,so I teach a lot (US & Canada; GIS I,II,III,…,XXII etc). My specialized education in GIS&T prepared me, unwittingly, to become a formidable generalist. My research agenda includes roles as Co-PI on funded projects (e.g., NSF, Biocomplexity; Center for Rural PA, Trucking and Warehousing; others pending) that enable me to do interesting work, mentor students, meet cool people, and publish somewhat broadly. I enjoy living in beautiful, historic and walkable Carlisle, PA, which is a small gateway city between the Appalachia and Megalopolis regions.
