Environmental Studies

Research Agenda

My research and teaching interests include subnational sustainability and climate action planning, U.S. environmental politics and policy, policy learning, adaptive management of social-ecological systems, the role of science and technical information in the policy process, and issues of urban environmental justice and social equity. I endeavor to integrate community-based research into my classes whenever possible. Previously, I worked both in the public and private sectors as a sustainability and climate change consultant. I have also served in City Council and Governor appointed government positions, and multiple NGO governing boards related to sustainability and environmental policy, affordable housing, and civic engagement.
