I am specializing in human dimensions of natural resources and I work to integrate social science research with natural resource management. I believe that understanding human attitudes and behaviors towards the environment, and subsequently working to produce pro-environmental attitudes and behaviors, is the key to solving many of the world's conservation issues.

Currently, my research explores cigarette butt littering behavior on public beaches. I am studying how the awareness of environmental consequences of one's behavior, as well as how emotionally attached to a place one feels, may influence littering behavior.
