Curriculum Vitae

 Biography
I grew up in the suburbs of Portland, Oregon and foothills of the Cascade Mountains. I joined the Church after high school, served a mission and completed a Bachelor’s degree in microbiology from Washington State University. My wife and I were married in the Portland temple shortly after the completion of her mission and my starting a Master’s degree program in West Virginia. We both completed PhDs from the University of Cincinnati. My research uses a health geography framework to identify risks, needs and translate this into practical intervention or prevention strategies. Currently, my research focuses on geography of urban health problems. This includes urban on-road bicyclists. My wife is an evolutionary plant ecologist and we have two children. We love cycling, running, hiking, the outdoors and snow in the winter.
