Research Interests

My research interests are focused on developing interdisciplinary and mixed-methods approaches to investigate, understand, and address the complex social drivers of environmental and human health problems and injustice. My work relates most directly to three interrelated streams of research within sociology: the social psychological and cultural bases of action and behavior, conflict and justice in relation to technology, natural resource management and development, and assessment of the social facets of adaptive capacity and resilience to the effects of climate change.
