Curriculum Vita 

Interests: Environmental sociology, urban sociology, rural sociology, environmental justice, sustainability.

Research: My research focuses on the socioeconomic factors that contribute to, and mitigate environmental degradation. I am currently working on a number of projects: 1) Assessing how social inequality (i.e. race, gender, and social class) contributes to environmental degradation. 2) The types of urban development that increase and decrease anthropogenic environmental impacts. 3) The ecological consequences of environmentally sustainable processes and policies. Currently, for all of these projects, I use advanced quantitative methods to construct and analyze hypothesis. In the future, I intend to include qualitative data to address these question in a way that quantitative methods cannot.
