Research Interests

I am a cultural geographer who is interested in the ways that human cultures impact the landscape. I am particularly curious about how cultural change is articulated in the built landscape, and the emotional attachments that people form with places and landscapes. My current research is focused on the social processes that have created the landscapes of the Brazos Valley, and the best methods for geographers to communicate with general audiences about place in a digital world.
