Teaching

My goal for my students is that they critically engage with the reading material (newspaper articles, journal articles, textbooks, podcasts and blog posts) used in my courses. I aim to develop a class vibe where students are comfortable exploring challenging topics by asking me and their peers questions. Through creating a co-learning environment I am continually inspired and challenged by my students. My courses often attract advanced undergraduate geography majors but are also relevant to non-majors or graduate students interested in development and health. Over the past four years I have taught a variety of courses relating to population, health and development:

Population Geography

Geography of Health and Healthcare

Economic and Business Geography

Graduate seminars in applied statistical analysis for population research and advanced population geography
