I am currently a post-doctoral scholar and fellow with Stanford University’s Thinking Matters program. I received my PhD from the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University in 2012. My research interests combine elements of political ecology, geography, and environmental history. I consider myself broadly a human geographer, though my training and interests are interdisciplinary. My research examines human-environment relationships and the role of coastal and marine spaces in mediating those relationships. My dissertation work analyzed conflicts between commercial and recreational fishing groups to explore how the socioeconomic, political, and material spaces of fishing have changed over time and are continually negotiated. My postdoctoral work is focusing on how coastal regions are interpreting US marine spatial planning policies. In addition to conducting social science research, I am also enthusiastic about teaching and have taught courses in political ecology, sustainability, and environmental studies.
