Hello!
My research involves examining the topographic and geologic controls on plant distributions in eastern California, and the impacts of climate change on
those distributions of plants.

Next semester, I will be teaching a new seminar course on climate change for Albion College's Honors Institute. I regularly teach courses on GIS and remote sensing, and have frequently taught natural hazards and environmental geology.

Currently, I have separate exercises on hurricanes and climate change, but none that combine the two. I have used these in teaching separate sections on each topic for my natural hazards class.

I would like to develop a teaching activity that uses very basic GIS analysis in a case-based investigative learning exercise, but am open to any type of interactive exercise.
