I am Assistant Professor in the School of Sustainability at Arizona State University. My research focuses on the spatial science of human-environment systems and sustainable development, with specific interests in understanding the relationships among land, rights, and resources, as well as the causal mechanisms for achieving synergistic outcomes in agricultural production, environmental conservation, and human well-being. I pursue these questions by integrating qualitative insights from case studies with spatial analysis and statistical modeling of quantitative data. I work in a number of domains including 1) land tenure and land use change, 2) mobility and movement, 3) spatial human-environment dynamics, 4) urban space and health, and 5) sustainable energy transition.
