I combine anthropological theory with my experience working as a policy analyst to identify solutions to environmental problems. In particular, I analyze how environmental information is distributed in human ecosystems and how this affects our ability to adapt and change. I rely heavily on experimental methods and projects designed in interdisciplinary teams with colleagues from diverse backgrounds. My academic appointment at Lehigh is split between the university's Environmental Initiative and Department of Sociology & Anthropology.
