Geographically curious; globally engaged.
I am a professor of geography and international studies at Columbus State University in Georgia, USA. I also hold the Mildred Miller Fort Foundation Eminent Scholar and Chair of International Education at CSU. Global learning is one of the outcomes I value most through my teaching and administration of international education. My research areas focus on the production of space, the politics of scale, and contested spaces/borders.
I have been a SIO (senior international officer) for 23 years and am experienced in education abroad, international enrollment management, international student and scholar services, and international/regional studies.
My scholarship focuses on Brazilian urban geography, the political ecology of the Georgia coastline, and more recently, on antique maps of colonial America.
