The most fun I have all day is meeting with students (laugh or roll your eyes -- it's true!), whether the course is Introduction to Women's Studies in the Social Sciences; Senior Seminar in Women's Studies; Research Methods in Geography; or Geography, Gender, and Work. I also direct the Women's and Gender Studies Program, which means I advise students one-on-one, plan events, and work with the Women's and Gender Studies Committee. My current research lives at the intersection of fathers, masculinity, space, and children with autism. My previous research, on topics ranging from feminism and quantitative research methods to gender and work, has appeared in The Professional Geographer, Society and Space, and Thirdspace, as well as in a book I co-edited called Feminisms in Geography. I speak about gender and work to women's groups and volunteer with the Autism Society of Nebraska.
