As Chair of Environmental Studies, my major goal is to support our students by organizing an interdisciplinary curriculum with student friendly undergraduate and graduate degree programs. I love teaching, and my favorite courses include Conserving Biodiversity and Ecosystem Management. My present research interests are primarily in environmental ethics, and recent projects have investigated the ethics of commercial fishing and the environmental ethics of Christian art. I am also supervising research involving habitat assessment in local forests and along the shores of Lake Waco. I remain committed to a peaceful and intellectually stimulating synthesis of Christian values and thought with environmental education, and believe the Department of Environmental Studies can set a good example to the rest of the campus in its pursuit of interdisciplinarity in the sciences and social sciences.
