I am an interdisciplinary social scientist who studies natural resource management in two directions: how humans benefit from the natural environment and how human actions impact the natural environment.  My research has been based in the Pacific Northwest and Latin America.  I use a variety of tools from psychology, anthropology, sociology, political science and other disciplines to help resource managers better understand and integrate social sciences into natural resource management, with specific expertise in:

  • Conservation Psychology and Human Wellbeing
  • Applied research on human dimensions of natural resource management
  • Program Evaluation and Facilitation
  • Environmental Education and Social Learning
