My goal for my students is that they critically engage with the reading material (newspaper articles, journal articles, textbooks, podcasts and blog posts) used in my courses.  I aim to develop a class vibe where students are comfortable exploring challenging topics by asking me and their peers questions.  Through creating a co-learning environment I am continually inspired and challenged by my students.  My courses often attract advanced undergraduate geography majors but are also relevant to non-majors or graduate students interested in development and health.  Over the past four years I have taught a variety of courses relating to population, health and development:

  • Population Geography
  • Geography of Health and Healthcare
  • Economic and Business Geography
  • Graduate seminars in:
    • applied statistical analysis for population research
    • advanced population geography
