I am an interdisciplinary environmental social scientist who draws from multiple perspectives and applies evolutionary theory to the study of biodiversity conservation, sustainable development, and sustainable consumption at multiple scales of and 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 dynamics that lead to the adoption of conservation behaviors and the emergence and spread of norms and institutions that support more sustainable lifestyles.
