I am an Assistant Professor of Geography in the Department of History and Political Science of the School of the Arts, Communication and Global Studies at York College of Pennsylvania. I teach a variety of geography classes spanning physical geography, human geography, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) courses. My primary research interests lie at the nexus of physical systems and human systems. Specifically, under the framework of the coupled human-physical systems, I focus on my research in the areas of land use land cover change (LULCC), sustainability (3 pillars – environmental conservation, economic viability, and social justice), and climate change at various geographic scales.
