As a researcher and teacher, I am broadly interested in the interactions between humans and the environment. As a political ecologist, I investigate the multi-scalar power dynamics embedded within processes of climate change adaptation, environmental governance, and natural resource access. I am particularly interested in how these processes occur in relation to water and flooding. I take a mixed methods approach to my research, with an emphasis on qualitative data collection. I have research projects in Southern Africa and Southern West Virginia. You can read more about these on my research page.
