Greetings, alumni! I am thrilled to be joining the HUBI program as a new assistant professor starting in fall 2016. I will be coming to IU from St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas, where I currently teach environmental science, ecology, primatology, global health, human diet, and research courses at the undergraduate and master’s levels. In my new position, I will be based in both HUBI and the Anthropology Department and am looking forward to applying my interdisciplinary background by offering a number of HUBI courses focused on current environmental and human health issues. Climate change and loss of biodiversity are two of the most pressing threats we face today, and through the new courses I will be offering, we will explore how exponential growth in human population and consumption threatens both our own health and the sustainability of the natural ecosystems that human society depends upon. I look forward to meeting many of the current HUBI students in my fall 2016 B 400 course focused on EcoHealth in the Anthropocene.
