Research Interests: 

I am an environmental scientist who is interested in interdisciplinary approaches to conservation and sustainability in arid regions. I have just finished my first year as a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Arizona in Tucson where I am majoring in Arid Lands Resource Sciences and minoring in Global Change. My research interests are at the Nexus of social and natural sciences mainly focusing on the human dimensions of natural resources and socioecological systems.

During the summer of 2013 I will be working as a research assistant on an ongoing project that is implementing the PRACTICE protocol to evaluate restoration actions to prevent desertification in the San Simon watershed located in Southeastern Arizona.
