My Teaching

I am a professor of Geography at Cal Poly Pomona for more than 25 years. My teaching and research are in the areas of physical geography, Geographic Information Science (GIS), climatology, environmental modeling and sustainability. I teach physical geography, climatology, multimedia mapping, environmental modeling with GIS, Geography of California, and graduate courses in RS. I believe that the most effective learning occurs when students are actively engaged in the learning process and are getting timely feedbacks on their learning – this believe is reflected in my teaching that the focus is placed on designing and adopting learning activities that engage students with the course materials, classmates, and the instructor, with various feedbacks in the process.
