My research and teaching interests center around sustainability and climate change adaptation. My background is in Environmental Studies. I draw on critical geography in my research and teaching. Currently, my research analyzes responses to climate change to meet societal and conservation objectives. This includes research into natural resource management and planning as well as projects looking at how cities are adapting to climate change. I teach graduate courses on Social Ecological Systems and Planning for Sustainable Communities. I serve on graduate committees for students from across campus and am interested in working with students pursuing research projects and practicums broadly related to my interest areas.
