Research

My research investigates how people relate to nature through interpersonal experiences, and how this motivates them to take action for social change. In the past, I have done ethnographic research in Ashtabula, Ohio on how experiences with unexplained illness can motivate individuals to become environmental justice activists. My dissertation will look to understand how Florida’s Seminole Tribe adapts to contemporary environmental change through their own unique historical experiences across the Florida landscape.
