I’ve been a faculty member in the Geography Department at the UW-Madison since 2003, and most of my research since then has been funded by National Science Foundation grants. From 1997 to 2003, I was a faculty member at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, in the Conservation and Survey Division (the state geological, water, and soil survey) and the Department of Geoscience. Part of my job there was Quaternary geologic mapping, including numerous 7.5-minute quadrangles in the Omaha-Lincoln area, available here from CSD. I’ve also collaborated extensively with colleagues at the School of Geographic and Oceanographic Sciences at Nanjing University, and taught a short course on Processes of the Critical Zone there in 2018.
