After a career in exploration with a major international oil company, I returned to academia and completed a Ph.D. in transportation / economic geography, examining the rejuvenation of the North American freight rail industry. I have lived in a number of US cities and also lived and traveled in Western Europe, as well as making business and pleasure trips to Canada (see photo), Mexico, Madagascar and Bolivia. In my teaching I am able to draw on my experiences with a wide variety of developing and developed country conditions, and on varying location and culture-dependent approaches to transportation, energy, and other planning issues.
