Traditionally, Geography has been defined as a discipline which seeks to explain the patterns and processes that characterize and shape the surface of the earth. Over the last four decades the discipline has broadened its scope and branched out into areas where the geographic perspective can lend itself to more analytical, problem-based and applied subject matter.

Today, in this broadly defined field my principal areas of teaching and research fall within the systematic specialization of environmental planning and management and the technical specialization that has become known as geographic information science.

Overall, my academic work contributes to the three broad categories of environmental, physical, and applied geography. Within these categories I maintain an active research interest in the development and application of geographic information technologies such as Remote Sensing, GIS and applied Artificial Intelligence to problems that fall within the scope of environmental planning, environmental assessment, and natural resource management decision making.
