The goal of my research is to increase scientific understanding of human behavior as it relates to the sustainability of socio-ecological systems. I investigate factors that enable and constrain human adaptation to natural hazards and climate change. I am particularly interested in understanding what motivates individuals (e.g., private landowners) and organizations (e.g., natural resource agencies and environmental organizations) to cooperate on natural resource management and environmental conservation.
