    I grew up near Vancouver. In 1991, I went to Mexico on student exchange and fell in love with Latin America and its history. I studied Latin American and Caribbean Studies at McGill University (B.A.) and at the University of California in San Diego (Master’s). I graduated from the University of Illinois in 2009 with my Ph.D. in history; my dissertation looks at the environmental history of the development of the world’s largest fishing port in Chimbote, Peru. I am presently working on turning my dissertation into a book; in 2015 I published an essay on an earthquake that destroyed Chimbote, “Revolutionizing the Tragic City” in the Journal of Urban History. I have traveled extensively through Peru and Mexico and look forward to taking students on study abroad trips to Latin America. I’ve worked at MSUM since 2008 and I teach classes in world, Latin American, African, and environmental history, as well as Spanish language.
