My research interests are on human impacts on the environment at different spatial and temporal scales. Specifically, I am curious about the processes related to land and water interfaces and their effect on humans, as well as the roles that humans play in affecting these systems. I utilize Earth systems science, geospatial technologies, and mixed methods research to examine these intricate relationships.
