Selected Teaching Experience:
INSTRUCTOR BIOL 403: Field Problems in Marine Biology
University of Hawaii at Manoa, Department of Biology (2009-2011)
Created a geospatial curriculum for a one-month intensive field marine biology course at the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology. Taught undergraduates to use GPS, plan a field sampling design using benthic habitat maps, manage data in GIS (Geographic Information Systems), collect remotely sensed data, conduct spatial analysis and create map products for scientific reporting.
INSTRUCTOR GEOG 488: Geographic Information Systems
University of Hawaii at Manoa, Department of Biology (2009)
Taught undergraduate and graduate students the proper design, implementation and management of a GIS database. Techniques for spatial data manipulation were presented in depth and the course culminated with independent student research projects demonstrating the application of GIS.
Co-organizer (Lisa Wedding, NOAA and Nadine Golden, USGS) for the Monterey Bay Marine GIS User Group. Please visit the user group website for updated information on GIS training and networking events for the broader GIS science community in Monterey Bay. The goal for these semi-annual meetings is to foster collaboration among academic, private, state and federal agencies and NGO's in the Monterey Bay marine GIS science community.
