University of Manitoba

I am a full-time instructor in the Department of Environment and Geography at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.  My academic background includes a Bachelor of Science in Geography from the University of Winnipeg, a Master of Arts from the Department of Geography, and a Ph.D. from the Department of Soil Science, both from the University of Manitoba. My Master’s research focused on estimating canola phenology and fractional leave area from temperature while my doctoral research focused on pesticide fate in soils and pesticide use in Manitoba, Canada. 

I  teach a variety of courses which include 

  1. Introduction to Physical Geography
  2. Geomorphology
  3. Natural Hazards
  4. Geography of Canada
  5. Geography of the United States
  6. Geography of Canadian Prairie Landscapes 

 My current focus and passion is teaching geography.  I have been teaching for over 10 years and I continually strive to pass on my love of geography to my students while inspiring them to find their own passions. My goal is to bring knowledge, humour, compassion, and kindness to my teaching and interactions with students.
