I am an interdisciplinary environmental social scientist who draws from multiple disciplinary perspectives and applies evolutionary theory to the study of biodiversity conservation, sustainable development, and sustainable consumption in domestic and international contexts.

My goal is to make a small contribution to our understanding of what a more sustainable world might look like and how we can get there. To that end, I am broadly interested in understanding the factors and conditions that lead to the adoption of conservation behaviors and the emergence and spread of norms and institutions that support more sustainable resource use, behaviors, and consumption patterns.
