Research Areas

  • Agent-based modeling
  • Coastal resource management
  • Mixed-effects modeling
  • Social-ecological systems

I’m interested in the social and environmental conditions that drive individuals to engage in community-based conservation efforts. I use theories and methods from the fields of cultural evolution, land system science, and general study of complex systems. My current research projects are primarily located in Pemba, Tanzania. My collaborators and I are quantifying past conservation interventions’ effects on communities, the environment, and the future of conservation on the island.
