NOTE: Due to my administrative appointment I am not currently pursuing new research opportunities or recruiting new graduate students.

Private forest policy, forest-based rural development, integration of qualitative and quantitative research methods, integration of social and ecological research.

Essentially all of my research is undertaken in collaboration with graduate students. To varying degrees students take responsibility for the design and implementation of the research leading to their theses. My principal roles are those of coach, critical reviewer, and sounding board.
Current graduate students (Fall, 2014):

  • Sophia Polasky, PhD. Rural community resilience in West Africa.
