Teaching

At Grenfell Campus, Memorial University, I teach courses on a range of topics in community planning, economic and cultural geography, and environmental assessment. I have taken the lead in developing City Studio Grenfell, an experiential learning program which sees community planning students create local projects in collaboration with municipal planners.

I supervise graduate students working on topics related to social justice, community planning, urban social policy, rural economic innovation, and other topics which examine the cultural facets of economic change.
