Cases Research Endeavors...

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

- Wittgenstein -

While touting the need for broad applicability, Academia often forces people to choose a narrow specialty within an even narrower sub-field. I eschew this limiting practice – as I argue in this Op-Ed, Chapter Two of my book, & elsewhere – focusing instead on removing traditional disciplinary restrictions and bridging perceived divides. Owing to this, I’ve been an invited reviewer for numerous books, articles, and grant proposals, served in multiple (international) advisory capacities, presented my research or been an invited speaker nearly 60 times at different professional functions, authored over five-dozen peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, and penned more than two-dozen commentary pieces – all of which span the discipline’s gamut. Alongside these accomplishments, I serve as the Science, Technology, and Law Representative for The University of the West Indies Press Editorial Committee, as well as the Associate Director of the interdisciplinary Stone Heritage Research Alliance. I have also published four books (as sole editor or co-editor) and five different training and reference manuals, including an introductory physical geography laboratory manual used at different universities across the US. Still, teaching remains my raison d’être.
