Welcome to my website!

I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Through an interdisciplinary lens, my Research Group conducts environmental social science research to solve social-ecological problems and enhance human-nature relationships in natural resource management contexts. We are particuarly interested in understanding the social and psychological processes driving individual behaviors that influence terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. My specific interests relate to:


  • Correlates of environmental behavior


  • Cultural ecosystem services understood using participatory mapping techniques


  • Natural resource management decisions, with a focus on U.S. and Australian protected areas
