My current research interests focus on how biodiversity conservation is being (re)framed to address uncertainties related to the climate crisis. As a translational ecologist, I study and teach links between social, ecological, and policy factors when scientists, stakeholders, and decision makers work together to solve environmental problems. My past research has examined: how local governments' plan for climate adaptation and resilience; deliberative framing and discourse in the policy process; collaboration between government and stakeholders in natural resources conservation.
