Sharing my knowledge of the earth system is a major priority for me in my current and future career.
I am fortunate to be on the Academic Council for the Juneau Icefield Research Program. Every summer, I am an active faculty member with the program, where I am responsible for teaching 20-30 undergraduate students glaciology and mountain glacier hydrology. I also mentor small groups of students on research projects, many of which go on to be undergraduate theses and capstone projects. Three of these student projects have been presented in posters at the GSA and AGU meetings. For more information about JIRP, visit their website. Be sure to check out the phenomenal student blog as well.
I am also a guest faculty member at the University Center on Svalbard, where I co-teach their PhD level Glaciology course. I am responsible for teaching glacial hydrology and numerical modeling techniques, including classwork and extensive fieldwork with the students.
At Penn State I TA-ed several undergraduate level courses, including: Geology of Climate Change, Geography of National Parks, and Geophysics. I have also completed the Penn State Graduate Teaching Certificate, which included courses in teaching pedagogy and two semesters of supervised teaching experience. My formal teaching and mentoring philosophy is also available.
