A little background information


My teaching and research interests in geography fall within the interface between physical and human geography. This interface has become defined as "environmental geography".

Within this systematic specialization my work tends to center on the relationship between land development, resource use and the examination of human impact on the patterns and processes that characterize the physical environment.

Much of the work I do both in research and in teaching relies on the development and application of advanced information technologies, such as Geographic Information Systems, Satellite Image Processing, Computer Modeling & Simulation, and Applied Artificial Intelligence.

It's a lot of fun and sure as heck beats working for a living !
