Biography

I graduated from Colorado State University with specializations in Environmental and Natural Resource Sociology, Development, and Political Economy. My research focuses on the political economy of sustainable development, natural resources, and environmental governance. My primary approach is a community-based perspective of the cross-scalar and multi-level opportunities and barriers to sustainable socio-ecological systems with an explicit focus on justice (procedural, distributive, and recognition) in the processes and outcomes of collaborative environmental and natural resources governance.
