Curriculum Vitae

Research Interests

I am interested in the human dimensions of biodiversity and conservation, including the relationship between local residents and protected areas in developing countries, community-based conservation, and biodiversity values and attitudes. I am currently working on projects relating to integrating park-people relationships into understandings of protected area effectiveness; Tibetan village sacred forests in Yunnan, China; tiger conservation in buffer zones around Chitwan National Park, Nepal.

Personal Interests

Spending as much time in Asia as I can and surviving long periods without sunshine during the Wisconsin winter as well as I can.
