Research Areas

  • Social-ecological networks
  • Conservation outcomes
  • Science communication
  • Mixed effects modeling

I examine the social processes which influence conservation capacity in climate-vulnerable communities. This research aims to produce on-the-ground results, helping stakeholders better navigate the intersection of ecological integrity and human well-being. Understanding the social factors that build and maintain adaptive capacity in these communities is crucial to risk mitigation.


I am interested in collaborating on complex systems problems, looking at building resilience in communities with high vulnerability to climatic instability. I am currently partnered with World Wildlife Fund, examining the economic impacts of conservation initiatives on local households.
