I’m an Assistant Professor of Geography, Environment and Society at the University of Minnesota. I’m also Resident Fellow at the Institute on the Environment and an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the School of Environmental Sciences at Queen's University in Kingston, Canada. Before joining the faculty at UMN, I was a Research Scientist with the Geological Survey of Canada in Ottawa, Canada. 

I‘m an earth scientist, and most of my research deals with topics in paleoclimatology, climate dynamics, natural hazards and climate impacts on renewable energy. My specialities are dendrochronology and dendroclimatology, low-frequency behavior in the climate system, and the northern Great Plains during the late Holocene.

I grew up in Winnipeg, Canada and have also lived in London (Ontario), Tucson and Ottawa. I hold a Ph.D. in Geosciences from the University of Arizona and a M.Sc. in Geography from the University of Western Ontario.
