Evolution students discuss Gould and Lewontin's Spandrels of San Marcos in the outdoor classroom

Since starting at Georgia Southern in January 2017 I have taught several courses. The goal is always to provide intellectually stimulating lectures, relevant experiences that help connect the material to students' lives outside of school, and opportunities to learn material in a variety of ways. I also look forward to introducing students to the natural history of the Georgia Coastal Plain. Click on the courses below to learn more about each.
