I am grateful to work and live on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territories of the Lekwungen peoples and the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEĆ peoples whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day.
About our research
At the University of Victoria, I am happy to work with an exciting team of students and global and local partners, including communities, policy makers, and companies. Together, we define research questions to understand the governance of natural resources.
Many of the greatest challenges facing humanity today are related to climate change, biodiversity loss, and sustainable food production. My research sits at the nexus of these challenges in that I study resource governance with a focus on deforestation, from global to local scales, and assess the effectiveness and social equity of policies that seek to address this form of land use change.
