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) precipitation variability in the southeastern United States; (2) rainfall in the Albertine Rift region of Africa; and (3) urban effects on climate and hydrology.


My currently funded collaborative research involves examinining 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.
