My research focuses on the social, cultural, and political implications of environmental change. In drawing on a broad foundation including political and cultural ecology, environmental humanities, environmental philosophy, and human geography, I am interested in examining questions of how individuals, communities, and regions respond to challenges associated with large-scale environmental degradation. Some questions that guide my research are as follows:
• How are entrenched forms of structural injustice impacted by environmental change?
• What steps might be taken to reduce a given community’s exposure to environmental risk?
• How might political systems come to acknowledge and respect nonhuman natures?
• How can we establish solidarity with the ‘deep future’?
