I am an Associate Professor of Sociology at Idaho State University. My research examines how farmers are adapting to agricultural water restrictions in Idaho, international variation in public opinion about climate change, and the public’s perception of ecosystem services in Idaho, frequently through the lens of environmental justice. Much of this work is conducted as part of interdisciplinary research teams as I think understanding complex socio-ecological systems requires multiple perspectives, approaches, and disciplines.
I received a B.A. in Political Science from Colorado State University in 2001, an M.A. in Political Science from the University of Arizona in 2007, an M.A. in Sociology from the University of Arizona in 2009, and a Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Arizona in 2013. Current CV
I am currently looking for graduate students interested in working on a M.A. degree in Sociology with me and helping with one or more of the above research programs.
