My teaching and research interests focus on the intersection of nature and society. How are decisions about environmental resources made? Who benefits and who doesn't from different forms of environmental management? And which work best to achieve sustainable and just nature/society relations in various ecological, political, economic and cultural contexts?
My courses include Environmental Science and Society, Environmental Policy, a Senior Seminar on Sustainable Communities, Key Ideas in American Environmentalism, and a summer field course entitled, The Rocky Mountain West: Physical & Cultural Geography. Recent research examines community-based resource management as practiced on national forests in the western US as well as studies of the impacts of sprawl in rural Pennsylvania.
