Assistant Professor

Educational Background: 

Ph.D. Forest Resources social science, Oregon State University, 2007
M.S. Forest Resources social science, Oregon State University, 2003
B.A. Cultural Anthropology, Hampshire College, 1994


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.
