B.A. Social Science Education, University of Northern Iowa
My research interests include geographic education, international education, place-based learning, and study abroad. I am currently researching incorporating indigenous cultures into short-term university study abroad programs, specifically the Maori of New Zealand. I seek to better connect geography, study abroad, and indigenous cultures by researching more affective ways university students can learn about the world via travel and meaningful cultural immersion and interaction within a short amount of time.
