Teaching

In the past several years, I’ve had the opportunity to teach courses in geology, geochemistry, biology, and paleontology to diverse groups of students, both in the classroom and in the field:

As an assistant professor, at the University of Calgary:

Investigations in Environmental Geology

Paleoclimate Seminar

As instructor, at the University of Calgary:

Field Methods

As instructor, at the University of Washington:

Field Camp 400A

Field Camp 400B

As instructor, Western Washington University:

Field Camp, 2014

As a visiting professor, at Colorado College:

The Rocky Mountains as a Physical System

The Rocky Mountains as a Chemical System

As a TA, at the University of Washington:

Introduction to Geological Sciences

Dinosaurs

Physical Processes of the Earth

Invertebrate Paleontology

At Ingraham High School in Seattle, as an assistant teacher through the GK12 OACIS teaching fellowship:

Honors Biology

Marine Biology

Earth Sciences

In addition to classroom teaching, I’ve had the opportunity to teach field geology in southwestern Montana, with the University of Washington, Western Washington University, and the University of Calgary. In addition to mapping the spectacular fold and thrust structures of southwest Montana, I introduce my field camp students to sedimentology, stratigraphy, and Earth’s evolutionary history using the Paleozoic and Mesozoic strata of Montana as a natural laboratory.
