Anne Larson Hall has been teaching geology and water related courses at Emory since 1995. Anne grew up in Westchester County, New York, in forested, glaciated terrain with beautiful freshwater lakes. She started undergraduate work at the University of New York in Stony Brook, finished at Georgia State University in Atlanta with degrees in Education and Geology. Anne completed a Master's degree in Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Georgia Institute of Technology. She worked with Dr. C. E. Weaver on evaluation of the salt and clay mineralogy of the Palo Duro Canyon in Texas, one of many sites considered for a nuclear waste repository. Interests include geomorphology, sedimentary geology, water and energy resources, stream restoration and interdisciplinary and field teaching. Anne has co-taught two interdisciplinary water courses at Emory, "Water: In Science, Philosophy and Literature," planned with Walt Reed and Jack Zupko, and "The Science and Sound of Water" with Arri Eisen and Tong Soon Lee. The group has a recent paper in The Journal of College Teaching, "Teaching Water: Connecting Across the Disciplines and Into Daily Life to Address Complex Societal Issues."
