About me

I am a Professor in the Department of Geography. I joined OSU in 2001 as an Assistant Professor. I was promoted to Associate Professor in 2007 and to Professor in 2013.

I also am affiliated with the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Department; Science and Technology Studies at OSU; the Sustainability Institute; and the Institute for Population Research.

I have a PhD in Geography from the University of Oregon (2001), an MS in Environmental Studies from the University of Oregon (1996), and a BA in Environmental Studies from the University of California, Santa Cruz (1991).

My research and teaching are in nature-society geography, political ecology, and science studies, with a recent focus on chemical geographies, biopolitics of toxicity, and (de)regulatory science. I am especially interested in these issues as related to race, gender, and reproduction.
