Welcome

I am a human-environment geographer specializing in the human dimensions of climate change and environmental hazards. My research focuses on the intersection of human perception and decision-making with societal vulnerability and adaptation to climate change and environmental hazards. In my work, I investigate how spatial relationships and environmental context influence risk perceptions, communication, and behavior.

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Environment & Society at Utah State University. I advise students in the Human-Environment Spatial Analysis Lab at Utah State.
