ACADEMIC & RESEARCH INTEREST

As an ecologist with an emphasis on human ecology, my research has focused on the interactions between humans and the physical and biological environment.  Human decisions are at the core of most actions affecting the environment.  I am particularly interested in ecological and resource conservation issues that have a policy and/or human behavioral component.  With an academic background in both the biological and social/behavioral sciences, I am a strong proponent of research approaches that bridge and integrate across disciplines.   As a result, the majority of my research efforts have centered around attempts to further the understanding and prediction of relationships between perceptions, attitudes and values and pro-environmental behaviors.  I also maintain an interest in the role of scientific information in the policy process.
