Welcome – Bienvenido – Bem vindo – Tapeguahe porã

I am a human-environment geographer and Latin American studies scholar whose work transgresses disciplinary boundaries while contributing to critical scholarship in political ecology, environmental justice, development studies, and critical conservation studies.

My research and writing investigate struggles for justice and emancipatory futures in the context of radical social-ecological change in Latin America. Much of that work examines dynamics of large-scale infrastructure development, expanding extractive frontiers, deforestation, Indigenous rights, territorialities, conservation politics, uneven effects of climate change, and social movements.  

As an Assistant Professor in the Human Dimensions of Natural Resources Department at Colorado State University (CSU FoCo), I am co-Director of the new Just Social-Ecological Transitions in Latin America Program. Before joining CSU FoCo, I was an Assistant Professor in the University of Florida (UF) Center for Latin American Studies.

Please take a look around and feel free to contact me with questions or potential collaborations.
