I have a PhD in geography with an emphasis on the convergence of cultural geography (and more generally human geography) and GIS. A lot of my work incorporates community GIS. Many of my students are history and more generally humanities majors (though I have a significant sprinkling of political science, natural sciences, and computer science majors). My research explores the use of GIS in the study of cultural geography and I am particularly interested in the study of place-based communities of practice (for examples, religious communities, intentional communities such as eco-villages, and college campuses (an example of a universe of communities of practice).
