Teaching

Over the course of my teaching career, I’ve taught a variety of undergraduate and graduate-level courses across both human geography and GIS. At Georgia State, I’ve been responsible for teaching the following courses:

  • GEOG2200 Mapping Our World: Introduction to Geospatial Technologies
  • GEOG4518/GEOS6518 Digital Cartography
  • GEOS8030 Seminar in Cartography: Critical Mappings

Starting in the Fall 2023 semester, I’ll also be teaching GEOS8006 Survey of Geographic Thought, a newly-required course for incoming graduate students in our geography MS program.

Advising

Prospective Students:

I am always interested in speaking with prospective graduate students for our master’s program at GSU Geosciences. Students working under my supervision generally focus on using GIS methodologies to explore issues in the realm of critical human geography, especially urban social and environmental injustices. I am particularly interested in advising students who want to work on one or more of the following topics:

  • Critical, creative and community-based mapping
  • Housing, land and property ownership
  • Urban environmental justice in Atlanta

If you’re interested in working with me on these (or closely related) topics, please email me with your CV/resume, a brief statement describing your interests, and a sample of your written and/or cartographic work.
