The C-TRĒS research group is strongly committed to providing a welcoming space where people from diverse backgrounds can thrive. We believe that people with different experiences, skills, and perspectives strengthen our ability to think creatively and tackle important problems. We work to create an equitable and inclusive environment by fostering respectful and open dialogue, advancing leadership and mentoring skills, and valuing individual needs, styles, and career goals.

Undergraduates: I generally hire students who have already taken 400-level courses with me to be Undergraduate Research Assistants. If you are currently taking or have taken a class with me, feel free to talk to me about potential research opportunities!

Prospective Graduate Students:  Please explore who we are and the type of work we do through the C-TRĒS pages and my website, especially the publications page and the research page. If you are considering applying to work with me at UNC, send me your résumé/c.v. before the application deadline and tell me about your experience, skills, and future research interests.  Information about applying to the UNC Department of Geography is available HERE. The graduate program coordinator is Sara Smith. Information about courses and departmental requirements can be found on the UNC geography graduate program page.

I look forward to hearing from you!
