PhD, Indiana University


As an environmental social scientist my research explores a wide range of questions at the intersection of people, the environment and policy. Specifically my research investigates how environmental policies influence behavior and sustainability outcomes in different contexts using both qualitative and quantitative method and seeks to uncover the contexts in which particular policies are likely to increase prospects for sustainability. I completed an undergraduate degree in Ecology at the University of Waterloo, a master’s in International Rural Planning and Development at the University of Guelph and a PhD at Indiana University. My research has been published in a number of different venues including the International Journal of the Commons, Ecology and Society and Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability.
