Biography

I am an environmental anthropologist with research interests in conservation, development, ecotourism, globalization, climate change, social and resistance movements, and non-state forms of governance. I use a political ecology approach to explore how culturally-specific understandings of human-nonhuman relations and political economic structures intersect to inform patterns of natural resource use and conflict. Most of my research has been conducted in Latin America (particularly Costa Rica and Chile) but I have begun to work in East Africa as well.
