About this Speaker
I am a conservation social scientist
I advance understanding about the human dimensions of global environmental change such as biodiversity loss and climate change. The majority of my research uses risk concepts to explore human-environment interactions and all of my efforts are designed to build evidence for action. I bring an interdisciplinary perspective to a range of conservation issues such as wildlife trafficking, illegal fishing and illegal logging.
I am on the faculty of the Department of Geographical Sciences at the University of Maryland, College Park. I received my PhD in Natural Resource Policy and Management from Cornell University, MA in Environment and Resource Policy from George Washington University, and BA in Anthropology and Environmental Studies from Brandeis University. From 2006-2020, I was on the faculty at Michigan State University. I am an American Geographical Society Council Member, a National Academies of Sciences Jefferson Science Fellow,US Department of State Embassy Science Fellow and Emerging Wildlife Conservation Leader.
