My Academic Profile


My academic background is botany and forest ecology and in my PhD I became interested in the role of science in addressing complex environmental problems. My research seeks to examine the science-policy interface, the ethics and politics of knowledge co-production, mobilization and application, and new modes of environmental governance. My research is mostly situated in the interpretive social sciences and my theoretical orientation is interdisciplinary, drawing from science studies, post-structuralist political theory, and early American pragmatism.  My areas of focus are forestry, biodiversity conservation and climate change adaptation.
