Visiting Instructor of Geology | Georgia Southern University
Earth history and the natural world have always fascinated me, but my love for geology began with my first field excursion - a weekend trip to central Alabama during my first undergraduate geology course. Since then I have had many opportunities to study and explore the geologic past. Much of my research has focused on the co-evolution of life and the environment and has spanned from Miocene megafauna to Silurian marine extinctions.
Now as a visiting instructor I am having a fantastic time gaining teaching experience and regaling my students with the wonders of geology while continuing to sneak in research whenever possible.
