About Me

I am currently a Visiting Assistant Professor at North Central College in Illinois. My research specialties are the political ecology of climate-related disasters, epistemology, and international environmental politics.

If you are interested in my current work, you will find my blog under the “Notebook” tab.

My BA is from Sarah Lawrence College and my PhD is from the University of California, Berkeley. I have lived in Los Angeles, New York, London, and Berkeley, and I have worked in nine countries. While still in college, I cofounded SustainUS: US Youth for Sustainable Development. I have worked for a range of nonprofit organizations including the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development.
