Portland State University

A long-time NAGT member and glacial geologist by training, I am retired community college instructor now adjunct faculty at Portland State University.  At PSU I work teach largely climate science for non scientists through the geology and university studies programs.  This is part of a "retirement career" in which I am heavily involved in climate and sustainability education and advocacy through the following groups...

  •  NAGT advocacy committee
  • Greater Portland Sustainability Education Network < >
  • Union of Concerned Scientists - Oregon Science Network
  • Institute for Sustainable Solutions at Portland State University
As of July 2020 two of my key projects related to geoscience education are the Climate Toolkit and the PDX Virtual Bridge to COP25.
