Welcome to my academic home! I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Geography and faculty in the Virginia Water Resources Research Center at Virginia Tech.


My research examines human-environment interactions, specifically the human ecology of water and the intersection of hazards and anthropic systems. Primary research interests include access to water, household water treatment, sanitation, and disaster reconstruction in the WASH sector.


My teaching explores human dimensions of contemporary environmental issuesoften from a critical perspectivewith content from our backyard in Virginia to far reaches of the globe.
