Background:  My academic and professional’s goals are to explore the dynamic relationship between natural resources and people, ensure the sustainability of natural resources in developed and developing countries, and channel my research to benefit the underprivileged population. I believe that emerging challenges associated with environmental change at multiple scales span disciplinary boundaries and necessitate interdisciplinary approaches to better our understanding of social-ecological dimensions. My academic research has trained me to integrate theories from social and natural sciences and use intensive fieldwork with complex modeling approaches to produce comprehensive research on social-ecological sustainability.

Personal Interests: When I am not analyzing data or writing manuscript, you will find me bird watching or walking around with a camera taking pictures of nature.
