BA Geography 1986
Primary office:


My BA in Geography led to an MA in Latin American Studies at KU (1987). I moved to Miami in 1988 and did GIS work in epidemiology and public health at the University of Miami School of Medicine in the early '90s. Returned to graduate school in 1996 at Florida International University, completed my PhD in Sociology in 2002, and currently am professor in the Department of Natural and Social Sciences at Miami Dade College, InterAmerican Campus. Helped lead effort to develop and gain approval for two new geography courses and the (re-)activation of the AA degree program in Geography at MDC in 2006.
