Department of Anthropology


Advisor: Dr. Julie Velásquez Runk


Political ecology; Science and technology studies; Conservation science; Indigenous rights; Southeast Asia Alliance.

I am broadly interested in the role anthropology can play in bridging issues of sustainable conservation and social justice. More specifically, I study the political ecology of multiple-use landscapes and how attention to pluralistic valuation can produce more equitable and effective conservation planning.
