I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Geosciences at Georgia State University. My research focuses primarily on climatology, and my main research areas are (1) rainfall variability in western Uganda; (2) precipitation variability in the southeastern United States; and (3) urban effects on the environment.


My current research is funded by NSF’s Geography and Spatial Sciences program and involves working with other members of a human-environment research group (PECAR) to examine the role of moisture transport in rainfall variability and agricultural decision making in western Uganda.



I also have a passion for climate literacy, and much of my time and energy over the past several years has gone into the development of a suite of climate-literacy labs.   The initial funding came from a NASA NICE (now ESTEEM) grant.


Finally, I am the Interim Coordinator for the Georgia Geographic Alliance, which is a National Geographic-sponsored partnership between university faculty and K-12 educators.
