I am a historian, studying the ever-changing ways that people interact with the environment around them, and what this has to do with they relate to one another.

In my teaching and research, I interrogate how ecosystems, societies, and the climate have changed over time—asking what drives ecological crises, who ultimately pays the costs of degradation and remediation, and how local people have survived and lived a good life in a changing world.
