Education: B.A. & Ph. D Louisiana State University

Interests: I am a cultural geographer with an interest in Latin America. My current research involves yellow fever epidemics and nineteenth-century quarantine laws. I am also interested in perceptions of sacred space and religious competition in the landscape. I teach World Regional Geography, Geography of Latin America, and Intro to Human Geography. I'm always looking for additions to my budding sand collection.
