My research reflects the different lenses through which I view my interests in people and their relationships with their environments. Each project helps me to consider a different perspective through which to understand this over-arching project, allowing me to draw from different disciplines and communities in order to more fully consider my fundamental motivation: Responsibly governing our relationships with our natural environments.
