My position within GSS and CLAS is to offer GIS support to users in the department, college, and university as a whole. I am the chair of the University's GIS Technical Advisory Committee (TAC), which attempts to grow and focus the GIS community on campus. In addition to my support role I am also tasked with oversight of the GISIL (GIS Instructional Lab) in 243 Jessup Hall, assisting in developing research (as it pertains to GIS) for both departmental and non-departmental faculty, teaching short trainings sessions and short courses, and organizing ICIGO (undergraduate student group).
My research interests are focused primarily on the application of Geographic Information Systems to contemporary environmental and social issues. In my position with GSS I am available to consult on research questions which require GIS assistance, and if necessary, provide resources and solutions to assist in those projects.

In addition to GIS support I also offer trainings in Introductory GIS and other, more specific, topics. As noted previously I provide oversight for the ICIGO student organization, which seeks to provide community outreach in the form of GIS research.
