August 2006: I am starting my 26th academic year on the faculty at the University of Arizona.  This fall I am teaching (with a merry band of TAs) INDV 102 "Human Geography & Global Systems."   In the spring I will be teaching Geography/Planning 379 "Urban Growth and Development" and a graduate seminar (topic TBA).  My research focuses on the dynamics of migration systems and methods for analyzing human population distribution and redistribution.  Currently I am interested especially in the migration across the life-cycle and the linkages between urban hierarchies and migration patterns.  A recent paper reporting on this research was published in the special spatial demography issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
