Cases Research Endeavors...

“If people never did silly things, nothing intelligent would ever get done.”

- Wittgenstein -

Academia often forces people to choose a very narrow specialty within an already-narrow sub-field, even while touting the need for broad applicability. I eschew this restrictive disciplinary practice – as I argue in this Op-Ed for the American Association of Geographers, Chapter Two of my book, & elsewhere – and instead choose to focus on bridging perceived divides between physical sciences, social sciences, and the humanities. In fact, my books and peer-reviewed research span the discipline’s gamut: from Landscapes and Landforms of the Lesser AntillesDiversity and Sociocultural Impacts in the Andes, and Urban Geomorphology, to humanistic geography broadly speaking, sense of place, and actor-network theory. I’ve also been an invited reviewer for numerous books, articles, and grant proposals, served in multiple advisory capacities, presented my research or been an invited speaker over 60 times at different professional events, and authored over 50 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters in addition to nearly 30 commentary and commission pieces. I am also Associate Director of the multi/trans/interdisciplinary Stone Heritage Research Alliance.
