My work explores how people interact with the environment, as well as how people interact with each other over the environment and natural resources. Using interdisciplinary approaches, I examine political, ecological, and social dimensions of resource dependent livelihoods and land conservation approaches, as well as impacts resulting from various perceptions of the environment.

My research has focused on:

  • private landowner and community conservation and restoration in Caribbean and Latin American
  • collaboration and knowledge coproduction
  • ways to support local livelihoods and increase community engagement, knowledge, and needs in conservation initiations and policy
  • equity and justice in conservation/restoration work and philanthropy
  • preferred and effective ways of communication
  • diverse ecosystems, including oceans, coasts, tropical and temperate forests, rivers, and deserts
