I am an interdisciplinary social scientist committed to problem-oriented research on equitable environmental governance. My research group focuses on coupled human-natural systems with a particular emphasis on the nexus of water and multifunctional working lands. Theoretically informed by literature from public policy, environmental planning, and geography, my research is driven by the overarching questions: How and why, and with what information, do people govern resource management under climate change? And what are the social and environmental feedbacks of governance decisions?
I am currently an assistant professor in the Department of Natural Resources and Society at the University of Idaho.
