Research Interests

I am interested in how humans interact with their environment and how these modifications change ecosystems and have legacy effects through time. I use a multidisciplinary approach by combining paleoenvironmental, archaeological, anthropological, historical, and remote sensing data to examine anthropogenic influences on ecosystems and landscapes. I primarily work in lake ecosystems, wetlands, and national parks in arctic, temperate and tropical regions. I am also interested in how scientific and other knowledge sources interact with societal values and rules toward ecosystem and public land management decisions and policy formulation.
