Research Interests: Human-Environment Interactions, GIS/RS, Land Cover Change Analysis and Modeling

My research interests fall broadly within the area of human-environement relations and human dimensions of global change. Much of my past research has focused on household level analysis of land management decisions to explore the spatial dimensions of deforestation and reforestation. I study the role of institutions and policy in local and regional level environmental change processes as well as the influence of various household dynamics (e.g. risk, vulnerability, uncertainty) in land change systems. Methodologically I utilize GIS, remote sensing, spatial modeling (particularly agent-based modeling) and experimental economics in many of my research projects.
