Teaching

Geomorphology 210

I taught two 20-student 3-hour lab sections of Geomorphology 210 as a lab instructor. I greatly enjoyed the experience, but did not work as a TA again at UNBC due to field work demands of the CCRBSGRN and the data-intensive nature of my PhD.

I have also given a number of guest lectures:

  • 2021, Snow and Ice 454, Glacier mass balance, UNBC Lecture slides

  • 2020 Snow and Ice 454, Glacier mass balance, UNBC

  • 2019 Earth Science Careers 212, A student’s perspective on Physical Geography Degree and research opportunities, UNBC

  • 2018 Quaternary and Surficial Geology 411, Oceanographic and climatic change in the Bering Sea, Last Glacial Maximum to Holocene, UNBC

  • 2018 Climate Science Informal Seminar, Seasonal glacier mass balance from airborne laser altimetry, Columbia River Basin, Canada, UNBC

  • 2018 Snow and Ice 454, Introduction to Glaciers

  • 2017 Quaternary and Surficial Geology 411, Glacier mass change detection methods, UNBC

  • 2017 Snow and Ice 454, Introduction to Glaciers, UNBC

  • 2014 Geomorphology 210 Lecture: Introduction to Paleoclimatology, Bering and Chukchi Sea Case Study, UNBC
