Gary teaches Environmental Sciences, Hydrogeology, and Fluvial Sedimentology at the University of New Mexico.  My research focuses on how the form of fluvial sediments in sedimentary basins and how the variable geometries and grain sizes affects subsurface fluid flow (water or petroleum).  I am very interested in applying innovative teaching approaches to my classes, and I am currently interested in exploration of diversity issues in the geosciences.
